The method

Do you have 1 minute?

Because a video is worth all explanations, everything about the Sight-O method is here:

What is meant by:

Sight-reading - Sight-playing - Reading ahead - Sight-singing?

It simply means reading a musical score straight away. This requires a good level of knowledge in instrumental and musical theory.

Recurrent problems:

You hesitate, you check the notes you read, you stop and start.

WE HAVE TO CHANGE THAT!

 

LET THERE BE SIGHT-READING, AND THERE WAS SIGHT-READING

Here are the ten commandments of the perfect sight-reader

1

After clicking Play, you have 5 seconds to get ready

2

There is an indicated/recommended, tempo but you can change it

3

Force yourself to read with the mask

4

Don’t read each score several times in a row, remember that this is sight-reading

5

Forget bad habits

6

Don’t get hung-up on “false notes”

7

Concentrate in order to play smoothly and continuously

8

Forget the notes you’ve read for the next ones

9

Don't be afraid to skip one or more groups of notes

10

Sight-read easy scores, even very easy ones, to get used to the mask’s movement
