The ability to sight-read well is a valuable asset to any musician, yet sight-reading is often ignored. The Eyes and Ears series contains carefully graded sight-reading specimens with a duet part for the teacher providing support and the impetus to keep going!
James Rae likens this method to playing tennis or chess where the most progress is made when playing with someone of a higher standard. With developing confidence and practice, sight-reading, rather than feared, can become enjoyable and challenging.

  • New topics are gradually introduced with TOP TIPS along the way
  • Finally, specimen tests are set, as encountered in a typical examination including all subjects covered
