Develop your Sight Reading and Transposition

St Matthew's Church, Great Peter Street, London SW1P 2BU

Fluency in sight reading and transposition is not only useful for success in ABRSM and RCO examinations, but aids the faster learning of repertoire and the mastering of other musical techniques such as improvisation. In this hands-on class Marilyn Harper will give organists of grade 5 level and above strategies to develop their skills in these two areas. Of great benefit to those preparing for ABRSM grade 6 and above and for RCO organ playing diplomas, this class is also open to those not working for exams.

What to prepare
There is nothing to prepare for this class but please come with questions and ready to try examples.
