Now more than ever, the ability to sight-read fluently is an essential part of the training of musicians of any instrument. This workbook is designed to help young musicians overcome the nerves that often cause sight-reading problems, by giving them thorough technical grounding as well as confidence boosting strategies. This book is designed especially for bassoon players working for the Grades 1-5 examinations. Step by step it helps the player to build up a complete picture of each piece, first through rhythmic and melodic exercises related to specific problems, then by the study of a prepared piece with associated questions for the student to answer, then finally to the real, unprepared sight-reading test itself.
