Learning Your New Language

Learning to sightread is like learning a new language. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities for you as a singer and musician. As with any language, especially when learning as an adult, you have to be patient as it is a long process to become fluent. However, you will learn the basics quickly to start practicing. Remember that consistency is key. You don’t have to sit down for hours to do this. Take 10 minutes per day and review. On your own time, take the music you see for your choir, your band or just for your own pleasure singing at home and start to review what you are seeing on paper. Name it out loud. The key, the time signature, the note number. The concept is easy. The execution takes time.

The payoff is so rewarding!!
