Product Details


Play at Sight is a systematic course in the essential skills and techniques required for successful sight-reading, suitable for elementary pianists. Divided into four parts, each covering a specific range of skills, starting with separate hands within a compass of five notes, moving up to reading two staves together with varied keys, dynamics and articulation.

One week's exercises are given on each page - the teacher can hear one or more at a weekly lesson. The technical point of each page is clearly explained. Specific problems such as keeping eyes on the music and reading two staves at once are discussed. The gradual pace encourages an accurate and musical performance at every stage, essential for confidence and enjoyment.

Christine Brown is a renowned teacher and pedagogue of immense experience. She is highly respected for her lectures and articles on the subject of sight-reading and also a leading authority on the Hungarian composer, Bela Bartok.
