Day 137: Sight Reading Improvements
I have, in general, improved my sight reading skills over the past ten years or so. Now I am working on improving them even more by working through not only the ragtime pieces I picked to learn, but just playing through the right hand of other pieces as well in my big book of ragtime. At this point, I am going to spend a lot more time on sight reading. I am unsure when I will return to Debussy. It will probably be later this summer. Updates will be few and far between for the blog and the Twitter. Being able to sit down and sight read for 10-20 minutes here and there throughout each day lends itself more to my schedule at the moment over a rigid hour or more dedicated practice to a technically and musically difficult piece of music such as Clair de lune.
