Hi I am having trouble with reading piano music a bar or so ahead. I play a bar, but my eyes do not move quickly enough ahead, so my timing is out. My teacher has tried covering the notes that I have just played to make me look ahead but not successful really yet.
My teacher who is very well qualified says she is 3 bars ahead which seems to me to be impossible!
I am only grade 3/4 but in theory grade 6.
So I am not daft (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/fruitcake.gif)

If you happen to have an iPad I suggest you have a look at Wessar International's SightRead4Piano app. I am sure that by using that you would soon become much better at reading ahead. It makes the music that you have already played disappear, it includes a metronome, and you can set the pace at which to play. My students have found it incredibly useful and they enjoy using it.
