Review and Self-Check
Phew! That’s it! Congratulations on your sight reading music workout!
So, how did it go? If you made a lot of mistakes; simply pick an easier piece or just a smaller segment of a piece.
You can’t force the ability to read prim a’ vista by playing too difficult pieces. Step by step wins the race!
Review the steps of the mental preparation list in part 1 of music sight reading techniques for the types of mistakes you did. You will most certainly have managed a lot on the list, but maybe not all.
Your goal should be that after following the 10 steps of mental preparation outlined in part 1, and the Physical Preparation you learned here; you will be able to play the piece correctly at first try. If not, pick an easier piece. If yes, pick a slightly harder next time.
