THE ART IN SIGHT READING is a giant leap forward in helping middle and high school musicians develop and refine this most elusive of performance skills: reading at sight. What’s the secret? LAYERING: applying “soundbite pedagogy” that incrementally and logically develops the skills necessary to become a true Artistic Sight Reader. Thanks to this layered approach, working with THE ART IN SIGHT READING for just a few minutes each day during full-band warm-up or private instruction will enhance students’ ability to instantly recognize and perform key and time signatures, rhythms, articulations, dynamics, style indicators, and expressive markings. Using short, targeted original melodies and innovative techniques, students will quickly master the skills of reading both in and “around the notes,” empowering them to sight read with compelling accuracy, musical expression, and true artistry. In short, THE ART IN SIGHT READING is a road map to elevating musical notation to communicative and expressive art—the FIRST time…and EVERY time.

Middle school and high school band directors agree... “The step-by-step process in this book makes so much sense to my young players and helps them to feel successful and confident in reading something new. These skills are also extremely transferrable beyond just ‘sight reading’…into individual practice sessions and ensemble playing.” (Marianne C. White, Bernard Harris Middle School) “The pedagogical process behind each step of the exercises allowed my students to really analyze and see the different layers…to rehearse and practice in a way that advanced them in, not only their understanding of the music, but their abilities as a musician overall.” (Colton Bean, Winston Churchill High School) “Music literacy and the ability to successfully sight read a piece of music go beyond just the notes and rhythms. When a student can view a piece of music, perceive the phrase, and understand how to communicate the written musical nuances the first time they perform it, we know we have succeeded as educators. This method and these exercises made that goal achievable for all my students, no matter their ability level!” (Mason Daffinee, Ronald Reagan High School) Available for: Flute Oboe Bb Clarinet/Bb Bass Clarinet Eb Alto Clarinet Baritone T.C.
