yeah ^ um you cant really be taught or know how to site read without actually practicing it
practice is the key
#4
learn how to divide beats, learn how to write out the counts of each measure, do that alot. watch the key signature and time signature
#5
Go through it in your head before you pick your instrument up, so you've got an idea of what its meant to sound like
#6
Get a real book or something with lots of tunes or basic melodies and just sightread a few each day.
