Mr. B♮

In recent years, I've grown uncomfortable with sight-reading lots of flats and naturals, especially in chords, and with reading notes above and below the staves. This is limiting my ability to sit down and play anything on the piano. What are some good pieces and exercises that help a person regain general mastery in this area?

Tools for better sightsinging

I've done a little sight-reading in the past but it's never been my strong point. I do understand the basics - the intervals, time signatures, etc. I'd like to get better at this by using an online tool or iPhone app. Something that presents you with a bar that you sing to yourself and then plays it for you would be good, but I'm open to hearing about other options. So far I've looked at Singsolatido - which is good for practicing intervals but I want to work on more than one note at a time.
