It's been long ~ 10-15 years since i started playing/fiddling around over piano. Although it's been just 5 years that i am into staff notations reading thing. I have completed 2 grades with Trinity. Despite this I can play Beethoven, Mozart of grade 6-7 by looking at people play and by ear.
My question is i am absolutely ZERO - a BIG BIG ZERO at reading music, i literally have to decode each note on staff sheet. I just can't read and play simultaneously. It's so frustrating for me that i am thinking of giving up on reading music. I want to be in such a position where at any given instance if i am given a sheet of music , i will be able to just read and play simultaneously. 1. Is it a feasible dream or just a mirage ? are there people around who do this or 'those' masters also need to go through the sheet atleast once. 2. If it is possible then how should i achieve this. Thanks
