Now more than ever, the ability to sight-read fluently is an essential part of the pianist's training, whether playing alone, as an accompanist or with ensemble. This workbook is designed to help overcome the nerves that can cause sight-reading problems. Step by step it helps the player create a complete picture of each piece, first through rhythmic and melodic exercises related to specific problems, then by the study of prepared pieces with associated questions for the student to answer, then finally to the real, unprepared sight-reading test itself. Check-boxes for each stage allow both teacher and pupil to evaluate progress.

With a serious shortage of well-thought-out, structured material for sight-reading practice, these excellent workbooks are essential for all teachers and pupils even if they are not taking an exam. Used regularly from the very first lesson, they will go some significant way to improving the sight-reading ability of even the most reluctant student. --Music Teacher Magazine, January
This series of very practical and productive workbooks, one per grade, was published several years ago and has been updated, according to the cover blurb, 'to support the revised ABRSM sight-reading criteria' in the 2009 syllabus. With hundreds of fascinating, short character pieces it is an inexhaustible resource for lessons - and delightful music in its own right. Helpful tips and tricks will improve pupils' chances of gaining more marks in this bit of the exam, and this is an honest, well-designed, reasonably priced package. I would recommend its use outside the exam preparation period rather than at the last minute, because the skills picked up will help in every aspect of piano playing, aural perception and general musical awareness. --Piano Magazine, January 2009
