Reinvent students’ sight-reading practice and revitalize piano lessons with sight-reading ideas for every lesson. Professor Saxon will share materials and ideas that will make it easy and fun to include sight reading in piano lessons and practice. He wants to make sight reading easier to teach by demonstrating strategies that will help you –

keep plenty of organized sight-reading material on hand
Make sight reading appealing to students at every level
Rejuvenate tired routines
Include sight reading as an entertaining element in each piano lesson
Create your own sight-reading activities
Strategies include sight-reading games, sight-reading improv, and for fun, extreme sight reading. Please join me for this fun presentation and find inspiration for yourselves and for your students!
