The music is organized by scale, key, and finger patterns, allowing the student to learn through repetition of these patterns. The book has specific step-by-step activity suggestions, and enjoyable duets and folk music are included throughout.

    This book has a good model for teaching students how to sight-read, but it becomes very monotonous. The exercises are similar and become dull. I think that if the pace was accelerated, students could sight-read at higher levels quicker.
