I have recently added to our Getting the Most from The Piano Education Page article some advice on how best to read PEP's articles. I thought it might be worthwhile to repeat the advice here:

"Reading PEP's Articles

Although all of PEP's pages have a similar visual appearance, it may be somewhat less obvious that they have a similar logical structure, as well. Visitors can use this structure to maximize the efficiency of gaining information from the articles. Each article on PEP starts with a one or two paragraph summary which sets the context of the article and gives a glimpse of what will be discussed in the following paragraphs. Then follows the main text of the article, in detail. Finally, the article ends with a summary restatement of the article's main points, usually with general tips about how to put that information into practice (no pun intended!).

In practice, this structure allows you to peruse the first paragraph of the article quickly to determine if it is of interest. If not, you can use the links on the page to move on to something more useful. If you're in a hurry, just go to the very end of the article at the bottom of the page and read everything after the last section heading to get the main points. If you're interested in the topic and have the time, read the full article for maximum benefit. You'll find that using the structure of articles on PEP to best advantage will save you lots of time. Maybe you can use that time to look at some of the other 900 pages of the site!"
