Why I decided to create Piano Sight Reading

I believe that sight-reading is a skill that can truly open doors and bring real joy. That is why I created this website: so that you too can have the tools and the confidence to explore the vast amount of piano music available to us.


There’s nothing like discovering new soundscapes by obscure composers or unknown pieces by famous composers. There’s so much music out there yet to be discovered! I really hope you’ll join me on this journey.


As sight-reading at the piano is particularly challenging, I’ve created this website specifically for pianists like you.


I provide tips and resources so that you know how to practice, for how long, with what material and at what level
