Sight-Reading Books


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.

Based on the best-selling series from Jerry West, this 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.
