Book Description

9 Jun 2011 Improve Your Sight-reading!
Now more than ever, the ability to sight-read fluently is an essential part of the training of musicians on an instrument. This workbook is designed to help overcome the nerves that can cause sight-reading problems by giving sound technical advice and confidence boosting tips. Step-by-step it helps the violinist to build up a complete picture of each piece, first through rhythmic and melodic exercises related to specific problems, then by the study of prepared piece with associated questions for the student to answer, and finally to the real, unprepared sight-reading test itself. Check-boxes for each stage allow both teacher and pupil to keep an eye on progress. The new editions of this popular series supports the new ABRSM string syllabus requirements from 2012, ensuring success in the sight-reading tests of graded exams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very user friendly, practical support book 28 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great buy to help children in particular who don't want to practice their sight reading. It "explores" each of the strings in turn to build a knowledge of the key notes from each one. Then gradually builds up into fun pieces for easy sight-reading over 6 stages (including "small leaps", "dynamic markings" and so on). Lots of tip boxes to help think about what you see before you play. Useful exercises throughout. Highly recommend.

This is great for building up your ability in sit reading. It starts off with easy pieces and builds to pieces with crotchets, quavers and rests.

Yet another book for my child that had to get her Grade I test and never got a chance. Another waste of my money, because it has never been used. Anybody want to buy?
