Hi

I am having a part-time regular teacher because of
my odd hours reason. I also try to find another
teacher at the moment and one whom I speak to give
me a pretty strict and rigid "screening test"
basically saying that, if I can't sight-read the
piece at a particular level X, then I can't be
learning at level X and he won't be able to help
me.
In another word, if I expect to study at the
Diploma level then I am expected to be able to
sight read the piece at that same level .... man I
can't do it with sight reading easily.

Is he the right teacher for me ?

Thanks

i think it depends on music too. my teacher said that many Liszt pieces or modern pieces are very hard to sight read if not impossible. but you can always play those pieces by learning. thus, your teacher's logic is not correct. you may not able to read a Liszt TE, but you can learn to play it. so, what's the problem with that? unless your teacher means a standard sight readable piece at that level.

well, he is not my teacher yet. He didn't mention
anything about a standard sight readable piece
either, but just making a pretty general statement
as such. I guess the expectation is that if I were
to study with him, I should be able to sight read
a very large % of pieces at the Diploma level
quickly, which I think may not be uncommon after
talking to a few friends.
