Beginner Lessons for Getting Started

SRF is a great practice tool for students who already have some sightreading knowledge. It's not very well suited for beginners. I have a couple of high school singers who are brand new to sight-reading. I assigned SRF homework for all of my students and discovered that my very beginners don't even know how to begin. I would like to see a couple of very helpful beginners guides to sightreading so that when my students go to SRF, they're not completely lost. I'm talking about a video that includes very basic stuff. 

1. identifying where "do" is and what it sounds like.

2. What solfege syllable do I begin on?

3. When the note moves up your voice moves up. 

I'm talking about the very basics. It would be helpful if the beginner's guides had some interactive components.

Thanks for the feedback!  To use Sight Reading Factory, students will need a very basic level of note reading ability. In order to improve, they need a large amount of never-before-seen music to read in order to practice it.  Our site does not necessarily teach how to sight read, it gives a way to effectively practice and drill sight reading without needing a pile of physical sheet music.
