The industry leader in sight-reading preparation! This effective and efficient curriculum to develop sight-reading skills eliminates the need to retrieve music from the library, hand the music out to the band, collect and reassemble it in score order, and file it back in the library. Available in five volumes, each book provides one hundred short pieces and saves 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. Volumes 1-4 are designed to supply material for an entire four-year concert band experience without repeating any exercise. A proven tool for developing musicianship and for the efficient preparation for sight-reading contests.

String Training is a collection of 80 reproducible worksheets for the beginning to intermediate orchestra classroom or private lesson studio. Twenty stand-alone units provide brief writing and playing excerpts that can be used for assessment or tuning work during the first five minutes of class. Each unit is designed to develop fundamental skills in note recognition, finger patterns, key signatures, meter, rhythms, and sight-reading. New notes are presented in tetrachord patterns to help students learn intervals, scales, and arpeggios which are summarized on the final page of each unit. Every exercise is meant to be written, counted, sung, and played to allow students to focus on one music element at a time. They may also be used solely for sight-reading practice. Progressive exercises range from rudimentary quarter notes to sixteenth and dotted rhythms, compound meter, and syncopation in the keys of D, G, C, F, and A major.

 

These flexible worksheets can be used multiple ways to fit your teaching pace and sequence, with space to notate fingerings, note names, bowings, counting, or even solfege syllables. Violin, viola, cello, and bass books are compatible (unison) in appropriate ranges for the respective instrument, and each book includes supplemental fingerboard charts and instrument and bow diagrams. The teacher's manual provides a page-for-page snapshot of all four instrument worksheets, student resource pages, and additional assessment materials.
