ABRSM SightRead4

Breakthrough Sight Reading technique for piano players

Sight reading is a completely different skill that all musicians need to have and which could be acquired and improved during each level/grade of their education.
It actually means that when reading a new piece of music the student/performer needs to be aware of what follows and be able to play CONTINUOUSLY.


The ABRSMSightRead4Piano app is using a powerful technique that is encouraging the brain and the eye to read music fast and forward. There is no “going back”, there is only one way to go – forward!
By practising this technique regularly, errors are eliminated and fluency is rapidly developed.


• Teachers can now explain much easier what students need to do to improve their sight reading and play
with greater confidence.

• Students can use the app to study on their own. Their sight reading skills and musicianship will improve much faster.

• Parents have now the ideal tool to help their child when practising at home.


The music pieces on this app are included in the ABRSM Sight Reading Syllabus for Piano grades 1 to 8.

Simple way to purchase

To make your study better organised and thus easier to progress, two Apps have been created: SightRead4Piano and ABRSMSightRead4Piano.

Additional features

Dyslexic users of the SightRead4Piano app will appreciate the facility whereby the colour of the screen can be changed to green. Likewise, those with hearing problems will benefit from the subtle flash incorporated into the metronome as an option – coloured pink during the ‘countdown’ and white during performance.

What they are saying about us..!

“Having experimented with the (SightRead4Piano) app, I was amazed at how quickly progress could be made. I was doubtful that any system – no matter how creative – could improve my woefully slow reading ability, but after several attempts I was hooked… It really does force the player to avoid getting bogged down in the detail.”

“I am a keen pianist, but being dyslexic, I really struggle with sight reading. This app has completely changed the way I play with a tangible improvement in my playing since I started using it just a few days ago. I would 100% recommend this app to anyone of any age, ability or aptitude at piano.”
