See a note on a score and play it on the piano straight away
Understand how sight reading works
Name any note on the piano instantly
This course is designed for complete beginners who’d like an overview of how sight reading works at the piano and who’d like to learn how to read any note on a piano score.
It will also help piano students who can already sight read but who hesitate over certain notes, e.g. in the bass clef.
This course is NOT for piano students who can already read the notes on a piano score and would like to improve their ability to read rhythm, key signatures, or complete pieces of music. It’s just for beginners who’d like to learn how to read individual notes really quickly.

Sight reading is one of the hardest aspects of learning to play the piano, and it’s universally badly taught. This course uses a unique method to teach you how to read any note on the piano keyboard quickly and easily, so that you can then tackle any piano course with confidence. It will also help if you’ve already started learning piano but are struggling to read the notes (e.g in the bass clef).
5 problems with the traditional method
Traditionally, students have been taught mnemonics to remember what note falls on every single line and space of the 2 clefs, e.g. “Every Good Boys Deserves Favour” for the lines of the treble clef (E, G, B, D, F). This has several problems:
It’s a lot to remember. You have to memorise 4 phrases (“Every Good Boy Deserves Favour”, “F-A-C-E”, “Good Boys Deserve Favour Always”, and “All Cows Eat Grass”), and then remember when to apply them, which doesn’t follow any logical pattern.
It’s slow, because you have to recite a phrase every time you want to play a note.
It’s language-based rather than visual, and yet sight reading is a visual skill! It makes you translate every note on the page into a note name and then translate that note name into a note on the piano, but there are no note names on the page and no note names on the piano so you should just be able to see a note and then play it.
It doesn’t tell you which note to play, it just tells you its note name. For example, “Good Boys Deserve Favour Always” might tell you that the note you’re looking at is an F, but it doesn’t tell you which F it is, and there are 8 on the piano!
It doesn’t even teach you all of the notes you’re likely to play. What about Middle C, or D, or B, which are all in between the clefs? What if you go above the top of the treble clef, or below the bottom of the bass clef (both of which are really common)? The mnemonics won’t help you.
5 reasons why my method is better
There’s less to remember. You’ll just learn where the signs for the treble and bass clef came from, and how that helps you recognise the notes.
It’s faster. By the end of the course you’ll be able to see a note and just play it, without reciting anything.
It’s visual. I use pictures and colour-coding to help you recognise notes.
It’s specific. My method not only tells you that you should be playing, e.g., and F, it also tells you
