A Workbook for Examinations
By John Davies and Paul Harris
Brass - French Horn Method or Collection
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. 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 a prepared piece with associated questions for the student to answer, and so finally to the real, unprepared sight-reading test itself.
