On September 1st I will reveal which page you have to say faster than me.
On September 8th the challenge will expire and then I’ll post the video of my top speed with 100% accuracy.
Whoever sends me a video of them doing the challenge faster than me, will get a 100% REFUND on the book! (limit of 3 winners)

"So many people neglect Sight-Reading practice and you might initially think “those people are lazy” or “they don’t really take it seriously” but I've noticed that they just don’t realize how easy and inexpensive it is to quickly improve at sight-reading. The proof is in Kevin Hicks’ book!!! When you spend just this little time with this amazing resource and try to beat his sight reading challenge, you’ll see why it’s such a valuable tool for any musician at any level.”
Scott Wilson - Director of Jazz Studies - University of Florida
"I love this book! It's been such a great resource. The kids all like it too. I could see measurable results within just a couple weeks of using it in daily warm ups. It turned my kids into sight reading monsters! I HIGHLY recommend this book!"
- Adam Larson Director of Bands Skyline High School
"After applying your sight-reading method I've been able to pick up on the music much quicker"
“I took some of the skills learned with him, sight reading in particular, straight to the audition circuit and experienced the success of his guidance.”
“Monster sight reader is an essential purchase for any musician. His execution of this practice has made Kevin the best sight reader I've ever witnessed.”
