Sight-Reading Intensive Training. Lesson 2
To all Sight-Reading Intensive Training lessons
Today I will share with you the most important fact about sight-reading music:
All fluent readers don’t have time to stop and think about the name/color/picture associated with every note. They grasp music text visually, based on their notes’ position on the lines and spaces.
This module helps the player to memorize a corresponding note name for any line or space of the Bass and Treble staves.
Using the LEFT or RIGHT arrows, move the baskets to catch a note, represented as a fruit or flower bud, with a basket having the corresponding note name. Green and brown trees represent vertical Treble and Bass staff lines. Gradually they will change to normal horizontal thin black lines. Use the SPACE key to make notes fall faster into the correct basket. You have 90 levels and 10 different representations of the Bass and Treble staves to complete and finish the module.

II. Working woth Piano Keys: Gentle Piano Module.
H.Hiner 'Etudes for your eyes': LINES
Before you start working on our exercises, please, keep in mind:
It is not music composition. We made the exercises as less musical as possible to avoid any memorization of the material.
These exercises will help your eyes to focus on the lines and grasp corresponding keys simultaneously.
We recommend playing these etudes on 2, 4, 5 and 6 visual modes (press 2, 4, 5 or 6 on your computer keyboard). Use of 1 and 3 may distract you from the perception of the lines.
Download and save the following files:
