Read the review for yourself:
Traditional and new technologies are combined in this wonderful, original approach to developing sight reading skills. The book of 100 enjoyable grade 1 level sight reading pieces helps pianists make better sense of notation and enjoy the process by using it with free QR technology to listen, look and learn. Do not panic, all you need is the book, a mobile phone or tablet and wi-fi! Downloading the free Norton Snap QR reader to your mobile or tablet is easy and there are full instructions in the introduction. Once the reader is installed you simply open the app and point it at the QR code at the end of each piece for instant access to performances. Holland and Noke suggest that pupils listen to a piece first, then play it, and then listen again to compare it with how they played. It is simple but brilliant and pupils will love it- they will probably help you download the QR reader too... There are 10 sets of pieces and at the end of each set there is a special test piece, just like in the exam, and 2 more books are in the pipeline. The other great thing about this approach is that it is supported at www.e-musicmaestro.com where there are many great free teaching tips. What’s not to like, order it now!
