Reading Patterns in the Piano Notes
When learning a new piano piece, start by practicing one of each type of the patterns first. For example, first identify all scale patterns, then the chords, and finally the intervals.
Working in this way, you will "jump around" in the score. This is actually a very good way to quickly get to know and get an overview of the whole piece.
You will also discover places that are the same (Yay Bonus!) and similar. Stick to the same kind of fingering if possible, to make it easier and faster to learn.
If you ever felt intimidated, or even fearful of reading sheet music, this method of mapping out the piano score, will help you overcome that fear!
