Compiled and edited by Dr Katie Zhukov
This new curriculum was developed to address lack of good sight-reading skills in many advanced pianists. It is based on research findings of a University of Queensland project that compared three different approaches to sight-reading training (accompanying, rhythm and style) and combined these into a single course. The new curriculum underwent two trials in four institutions and was refined following staff and student feedback. The students using this hybrid program had improved significantly in their sight-reading skills on completion of training.
The course consists of 10 weeks of materials that can be utilised in small-group tutorials or individual piano lessons. The curriculum can be used as a stand-alone elective course in sight-reading or as supplementary materials for keyboard skills or accompanying classes. Each week focuses on three areas: rhythm training, solo repertoire in four mainstream musical styles and duet playing. The pieces consist of examples from the traditional repertoire and are greatly varied in style: using artistically rich examples is a deliberate strategy, employed to increase student engagement with the process. The chosen works utilise a wide range of keys to address impact of key difficulty on sight-reading as highlighted by research. The level of difficulty is pitched 2-3 grades below advanced to correspond with typical sight-reading materials used by examining bodies. 

The feedback from teachers who trialled the curriculum has been very positive:

“An excellent source for teachers and students alike – well-structured and containing interesting material. My students were keen to improve their sight-reading and found this approach very helpful. I enjoyed playing the duets with them, and found that the whole process gave me greater insight into their individual strengths and weaknesses, which in turn enabled me to assist each student better.”
Dr Arabella Teniswood-Harvey
Conservatorium of Music
University of Tasmania

“Katie Zhukov’s Sight-Reading for Advanced Pianists fills a void in the current sight-reading literature that makes it required reading for all aspiring pianists and their teachers. Of especial interest are the numerous rhythmic exercises that not only consolidate essential sight-reading skills, but also bring interest and variety to scale/arpeggio practice.” 
Glenn Riddle
Lecturer in Keyboard
Melbourne Conservatorium of Music

Sight-Reading for Advanced Pianists is a tremendous resource for advanced and ambitious intermediate piano students in either private studio or tertiary settings. Underpinned by peer-reviewed research into the development of sight-reading skills, this text can be used as sequential material for a term’s coursework, or dipped into on a more informal basis.”
Dr Liam Viney, Director of Piano, School of Music, University of Queensland
