Improve your sight-reading! Grade 1 is part of the best-selling series by Paul Harris guaranteed to improve your sight-reading! This workbook helps the player overcome problems, by building up a complete picture of each piece, through rhythmic and melodic exercises related to specific technical issues, then by studying prepared pieces with associated questions, and finally ‘going solo’ with a series of meticulously-graded sight-reading pieces. This new edition has been completely re-written, with new exercises and pieces to support the Associated Board's new sight-reading requirements from 2009.

Improve your sight-reading! will help you improve your reading ability, and with numerous practice tests included, will ensure sight-reading success in graded exams.

With a serious shortage of well-thought-out, structured material for sight-reading practice, these excellent workbooks are essential for all teachers and pupils even if they arc not taking an exam. Used regularly from the very first lesson, they will go some significant way to improving the sight-reading ability of even the most reluctant student.

Music Teacher Magazine, January 2009

This series of very practical and productive workbooks, one per grade, was published several years ago and has been updated, according to the cover blurb, 'to support the revised ABRSM sight-reading criteria' in the 2009 syllabus. With hundreds of fascinating, short character pieces it is an inexhaustible resource for lessons - and delightful music in its own right. Helpful tips and tricks will improve pupils' chances of gaining more marks in this bit of the exam, and this is an honest, well-designed, reasonably priced package. I would recommend its use outside the exam preparation period rather than at the last minute, because the skills picked up will help in every aspect of piano playing, aural perception and general musical awareness.
