I practice sight reading for an hour everyday from the Paul Harris Piano series and I currently am at Level 1 of sight reading. I find it hard to recognize notes, so I pause till I get the note right and then play the piece from the top. I try do not to remember that 4 bar piece and I never do.
My aim is to become a very very very good sight reader. I know it takes years of practice to get there. But is my approach correct at level1? Because I hear people saying "don't stop" and "pulse is important" but what's the use of sight reading if I don't get the notes correct?
Also is one hour practice enough? Moreover, can you please suggest me good books for sight reading, because Paul Harris is running short of pieces. Faber is kind of child-like approach which I hate. I need sight reading exercises. A lot of them.
