“Reading readiness" approaches have two goals:
1) to insure comprehension of all keyboard music reading principles, and
2) to develop the ability to translate these symbols to the keyboard with technical security and control.
The emphasis here is on understanding and musical literacy. The Music Tree, by Frances Clark and Louise Goss, is a clear example of this type of approach.
Rather than introducing all staff-reading concepts at once, the student is exposed to un-staffed pieces, then partially staffed pieces, and eventually, pieces on the grand staff. In this way, the student is able to more easily comprehend the meaning of each notational symbol in the music encountered.
