Each of these action-packed books build students' reading skills using two types of exercises: Daily Note Search emphasizes quick recognition of notes out of five-finger positions; Short Phrases in five-finger positions give your students a daily diet of reading (not rehearsing). The suggested practice routine fosters excellent self-evaluation habits. Progress reports help teachers and students track annual progress. Both of Levels 1 and 2 may be used with any beginning piano method. Level 1 provides sight reading material, both in and out of 5-finger position.
