Sightreading.

How much sightreading do teachers require their students to do each week? What kind of sightreading do they do? How uptight and perfect are any of you teachers about sightreading as in counting, notes, etc?

Erica,

I came across a website called the Piano Pedagogy Forum, www.music.sc.edu. Search its index and you'll find three articles relating to teaching sight-reading: why most good teachers believe itís important, methods of teaching it, why some teachers donít teach it, etc. Very interesting.
