The book is broken down in to 9 stages, and each stage introduces a new component of grade 3 sight-reading. Each stage starts with rhythmic and melodic exercises for you to practise important musical skills, and then you are guided through 2 small pieces with handy tips on how to prepare them and questions to improve your musicianship. At the end of each stage there are lots of short tunes with notated articulation, fingerings, performance directions, and dynamics, for you to prepare yourself, so you can go solo!
Practice chart & useful tips
At the front of Improve Your Sight-Reading! Piano Grade 3 there is a practice chart which allows you to track your progress, so you know when you’re ready to take on grade 3 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.
