The ability to sight-read music is one of the most useful skills that a musician can have, but most students aren't taught what happens when we sight-read or how to practice sight-reading to become better. In this class, we'll talk about what our eyes, ears, and brain do when when we sight-read. Then, we'll talk about three characteristics of good sight-readers and each student will work with me and classmates to practice each skill before making their own personal sight-reading practice plan...
I created a major research project for a master's degree minor in sight-reading and am frequently a presenter at middle schools, high schools, and universities on the subject.
Each week, students will have a short assignment to practice how to incorporate sight-reading practice skills into their regular practice sessions. They'll also have discussion questions in the classroom and are encouraged to post videos of their sight-reading practice.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
