What I do is one hour and a half of pure sightreading, to exercise it and to get better at it. 2 and a half hours working on the piece or pieces my teacher assigns (after my approval, of course, I am usually the one who chooses), and the rest of my time I work on other pieces that I like and memorize for repertoire...

I either choose a piece for us to work on, or over the week before my next lesson she decides on a piece, and I tell her yes or no...of course sometimes my word does not matter, because after all, she IS the teacher...

I live in Florida, and her name is Carmen Conway...lol, she is not in the internet, I already checked...She's really good, my sightreading used to be horrible, so she gave me the Czerny opus 599 BOOK 1 and 2 to use as sightreading practise. She assigned 6 of these exercises every week for the next lesson. I am surprised how quickly my sightreading is getting good!

She has not assigned any scales yet, ad I really dont want her to. I dont believe in scale playing, it is weak, non-musical, empty playing in which eventually will make u mechanical. I get my technique from repertoire...

well, actually, scales help you to know the sharps and flats. they teach you mood, fastfingering, and legato fingers! they can be boring :evil: ! In the end they help! :wink: Also, you need to know what key a piece is in!! :lol:
