A Workbook for Examinations
By Paul Harris
String - Cello Studies or Collection
Now more than ever, the ability to sight-read fluently is an essential part of the training of musicians on any instrument. This workbook is designed to help overcome the nerves that can cause sight-reading problems, by offering sound techinical advice and confidence boosting tips. Step-by-step it helps the player to create 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.
