This volume builds on the progress achieved by following the outlines and good practice established in Book 1. This book helps to establish the habit of regular sight-reading, generally recognized as a vital skill in all fields of music. To this end, the exercises are progressive and structured to increase the pupil's awareness of new rhythms, keys and range of notes.

Changes of hand position are introduced gradually, as is the recognition of and familiarity with chord shapes in both 2- and 3-note groups. - A progressive approach based on self-learning- 150 graduated exercises- Both hands treated equally for melody and chord playing- Hands together used throughout
