Here's an effective yet efficient means to practice sight-reading on a regular basis without having to retrieve music from the library, hand the music out to the band, collect it after rehearsal, reassemble the music in score order, and file it back in the library.  It provides one hundred short pieces (average length is 25 measures with a total of  approximately 10 hours of sight-reading practice) while saving valuable rehearsal time.   For effective rehearsal  planning, an index is provided in the score with key signatures, meters and primary rhythmic figures to provide assistance in creating lesson plans.  The music is arranged in a flexible manner so that it can be adapted to a wide range of ensemble sizes with varying instrumentation.  The exercises feature various key signatures and meters, key changes, meter changes, accidentals, reversal of rhythms, repeats of various types, hemiola, and isolation of various sections of the ensemble.  Emphasis has also been placed on dotted rhythms and counting of rests.   An invaluable tool  for the efficient preparation for sight-reading contests by allowing many opportunities to sight-read in class using the least amount of time possible!

As with the previous volumes,  Book 4  contains 100 short sight reading pieces, slightly more difficult than those in Book 3 including more syncopated rhythms,  more meter changes and more use of sixteenth note rhythms. The music for all four volumes is arranged in a manner so that it can be adapted to a wide range of ensemble sizes and instrumentation and is well suited for individual study. Book 4 makes it possible to use a different book each year so students will have new sight reading material from 9th to 12th grades. A convenient, effective and economical means to develop this very important aspect of musical performance.

Following the success of Books 1 and 2, we are pleased to present Book 3 of this widely used method. As with the previous volumes, The Sight-Reading Book for Band, Volume 3 contains 100 short sight-reading pieces of music at the easy and medium-easy levels. This material can be presented to developing students without having to retrieve music from the library, hand it out, collect it after rehearsal, reassemble the music in score order, and file it back in the library. The music is arranged in a manner so that it can be adapted to a wide range of ensemble sizes and instrumentation, yet is also well suited for individual study. With the addition of Volume 3, it is possible to provide even more sight-reading exercises so students will have a far larger number of new selections to sight-read without having to repeat exercises. We are convinced that The Sight-Reading Book for Band, Volume 3 will prove to be an invaluable tool, assisting the director in improving sight-reading skills while using the least amount of time possible.

Based on the best-selling series from Jerry West, this new volume presents 50 original exercises to challenge the wind band at a Grade 2-3 level. Longer etudes, 16th notes, minor keys and a few modes can be found in this more advanced collection. This is a fine way to prepare for upcoming adjudications and to build a sight-reading regimen into the curriculum for wind players, as it complies with the NAfME National Standards that define proficiency levels in grades 5-12. Creative, fun to play, and full of twists and surprises, it will keep your musicians on their toes as it teaches independence and musicianship through every section of the ensemble.

Solve balance and intonation issues with these easy-to-use and effective exercises where students learn how to listen. All five cadences (half, deceptive, imperfect authentic, perfect authentic, and plagal) are represented in all twelve major keys and voiced in three parts for all instruments. By changing parts, students learn to listen first to themselves and then, by reassigning parts, they start to hear each other, "opening their ears" to the sounds around them.  This allows players to quickly learn the concepts of blend, tone, balance, and intonation. Short enough to use in any rehearsal situation, they are a perfect addition to any warm-up routine.  Since every instrument has all three parts, they can be used with full band, sectionals, and small groups of any combination of instruments, making it a perfect all-around rehearsal tool.

The first in a series of selections devoted to improving specific areas of performance.  All 12 major scales are presented in a clear, easy-to-read format that's adaptable to any rehearsal situation and can be practiced individually or in sequence, with the full band, sections, or individual players.  The percussion parts include basic as well as advanced rudimental snare drum parts and melodic and auxiliary parts that can be rotated between players.  Percussion can be rehearsed as a section as well as with the full band.  Valuable as a daily warm-up exercise, as a reinforcement of performance keys, or as audition/grading material.
