We have several resource recommendations that will help you improve your ability to sight-read music.

  • Smartsheets - Spend time reading and playing through music of various songs in the PWJ Catalogue. The best way to improve your sight-reading is to simply practice!

As your understanding of music develops, you will start "see" music differently. Instead of seeing ten different notes, you will see the outlines of harmony. You will be able to take in the musical "ideas" or progressions, and predict where they are going. 

If you train your visual, mental, and aural musical understanding together, you will make the most reliable progress. Read more about this in our memorization article and effective practice tips.
