Product Details


A comprehensive supplement for classroom or studio in a unique format, Sight-Read It for Strings will develop consistent reading habits and improve sight-reading for violin, viola, cello and bass students. Using a non-sequential unit format, materials are flexible and can be individualized.

Sight-Read It for Strings develops consistent reading habits by addressing:
-Counting System
-Identification of musical and non-musical cues
-Identification of musical patterns
-Awareness of the music page layout (the "road map")
-Special reading issues not necessarily related to notes
