Trying to find a book on sightreading for the keyboardist in the contemporary music vein, was very difficult. This book approaches reading contemporary music in an easy to follow, practical approach. I would recommend this book to any one wanting to get to grips with their sightreading - from people who 'play by ear' to the classically trained pianist who wants to learn to read and play rock/pop/funk etc. music properly. It is opening up a world of music that, up until now, only brought much frustration.

I got this book to learn to read music after about 25 years of playing by ear and it did the job ok. After a while you'll need to get the hang of more complicated stuff if you want to deal with transcriptions for example that have difficult phrasing. So far I haven't found anything that deals with this type of problem. My solution has been to buy jazz transcriptions and listen while I read. Plan B is to use notation software and make up my own patterns to practice on.
The book has got the accidental nightmare in that it explains the modern practice that accidentals only affect the bar and octave to which they are applied. The author then goes and puts courtesy accidentals on the next bar without explaining why they are there. For experienced readers this is a 'so what' problem. For the beginner it's a pain. Otherwise it's well laid out and well written.

I bought this book to force myself to start reading music after twenty plus years of playing by ear. This book provides a good introduction. One thing I found very annoying though was the treatment of accidentals. The author correctly explains that accidentals only operate in the scope of the bar they are made and then goes on to put naturals everywhere thus defying his own and correct rule.
