Unsure how to prepare for your first sight-reading exam test? Don’t know how what to expect? Improve Your Sight-Reading! Piano Grade 1 is the perfect book for you!

Perfect exam preparation

This book will introduce you to the sight-reading skills needed for your first practical piano exam - through over 100 practise tests you will cover reading 4/4, 3/4 and 2/4, crotchets, minims, dotted minims, quavers, small leaps, tied notes, basic articulations, mixing left and right hands, and the keys of C major, F major, G major, A minor and D minor. Improve your Sight-Reading! Piano Grade 1 is the ideal book to help prepare you for your ABRSM grade 1 piano exam.

Step by step guide to sight-reading

Improve Your Sight-Reading! Piano Grade 1 starts off with an introduction by Paul Harris which explains how to get the most of the book and what each section covers. The book has 9 stages, and each stage introduces a new element of grade 1 sight-reading. Each stage starts with rhythmic and melodic exercises to practise your new skills, then guides you through 2 small pieces with handy tips on how to prepare them and quiz questions to answer. At the end of each stage there are plenty of short tunes notated with articulation, performance directions, dynamics, and fingerings, to prepare on your own, so you can go solo!

Practice chart & useful tips

At the front of Improve Your Sight-Reading! Piano Grade 1 there is a practice chart which allows you to track your progress, so you know when you’re ready to take on grade 1 piano sight-reading! There is also a really useful ‘Golden rules for sight-reading’ chart, which gives you information about how to prepare and how to perform a sight-reading piece.
