The books feature short, creative exercises which help students to develop their ability to read music more quickly and easily, both in exams and when learning new pieces.
The eight books cover the requirements for ABRSM’s sight-reading tests at each of Grades 1 to 8, and include:
- many short, characterful pieces to sight-read, in a range of approachable musical styles
- warm-up and technical exercises, to establish basic hand shapes and finger patterns within each key
- simple musicianship exercises in which students can explore ideas and familiarize themselves further with the ‘feel’ of each key
- longer solo pieces and a duet, for additional sight-reading practice or to learn quickly and play through for fun
