What most sight-reading methods fail to acknowledge is the importance of ALL the senses, not just what we see through learning notes and rhythms on the page.
What we HEAR through the development of our aural skills, what we FEEL through a kinaesthetic awareness of our hands across the keys, and precisely HOW WE SEE by improving our perception of shapes through intervals and pattern recognition, are all essential ingredients to developing effective long term sight-reading skills.
Developing The Senses
SIGHT - Develops note reading skills using intervallic reading and pattern recognition.
SOUND - Integrates Solfa ear training methods and fosters recognition of intervals and melodic/rhythmic patterns.
TOUCH - Strengthens the kinaesthetic relationship between what you see on the page and what you feel on the keys.
TIME - Enhances rhythmic sense through a variety of rhythm patterns and metres.
