I am spending the next year( or as long as it takes) to learn to sight read any pieces of music. I am using Bela Bartok Mikrokosmos as a main theme with other music. I know all my notes well, thanks to a great app.
I have learned to put these notes into keys and continue practicing daily. My practise is short but highly concentrated(15-30mn/day) I know how to analyse a piece well before actually reading notes, identifying its characters and difficult passages. I still find it challenging to read both treble and bass at the same time. Does anyone have any ideas to improve that? Because the exercise is sight reading, I concentrate on that, reading or following the notes in the page.
However, Because I have an excellent memory and a strong scales practitioner, I find that I stop reading or following individual notes. Instead, I start following the trends of the music, concentrating more on the rhythm and dynamics of the piece, sometimes using the wrong note! Is this a normal progression? What will happen next?
I know I'll get there eventuality but insight knowledge from more experienced musicians has been excellent! Basically, I want to be able to pick up a piece of music, analyse it, then play it.... in my opinion, that's the path to studying and researching an artist in the future. I think?
