sight-reading exercises to keep your whole group busy, and to help
everyone improve their skills!"
Sight Reading is One of
the Fundamental Necessary Skills!
One of the most
neglected areas of personal musical development is Sight
Reading! The only way to get better at sight reading is to
do it -- a lot! Just like anything else, the more you do of it,
the better you get at it.
One of the biggest
drawbacks to doing a lot of sight reading -- the lack of good
material -- is now solved! With David Miller's Sight Reading
Exercises, you now have the material to do a LOT of sight reading,
either alone or in a group.
Each volume of these
exercises contains thirty different exercises. There are three
volumes at each level -- I through VI, corresponding with beginner
through advanced -- for a total of eighteen volumes, for 540
Each exercise is a
complete musical number, making musical sense in the genre as it's
labeled. Some might argue that any musical number in the
twentieth century idiom doesn't make musical sense, but we even
address that genre in the more advanced volumes.
Besides being useful
as sight reading exercises, these studies are also ideal for
working out specific focus areas. For example, if your group is
having a problem with sforzandos, marcatos, or certain rhythmic
figures, simply find the exercise that uses these items and use it
as a development rehearsal tune.

Alone Or In A Group - Fun, Fun, Fun!
These parts can be
practiced and played solo or together as an ensemble.
People usually don't
like etudes or musical studies. They do them reluctantly, like
lifting weights. But these are fun to play. Just pass out the
parts, give them the downbeat, and watch them begin to enjoy sight
