Sight Reading & Rhythm Cards
If you purchased a Level 1, 2, or 3 Pack, you already have the Sight Reading & Rhythm Cards.
We include them here on the supplements page because these products work well with other programs while also functioning as a key component of our method.
The Sight Reading Card Pack contains cards for Levels 1, 2, and 3.
Additional Card Supplements
The following card supplements may be used with any piano method. They are available on Piano Safari Asia as a Digital School License. This means that an individual school or teacher may purchase this license and print the resource for use within their school or group of students.
