Sight Reading Solved Comprehensive Beginning Music Reading Course

Comprehensive Beginning Music Reading Course from the Ground Up!

This "Sight Reading Solved" course is for beginners who haven't sight read but want to gain the ability through a graduated course. The scale and the rhythm used starts super simple and then over the course of 22 books gets increasingly more complex. You are encouraged to look at the same pages below to see the progression from easy to difficult. All exercises in midifiles so a student can play along with an audio at a tempo of their choosing.

This Comprehensive Beginning Music Reading Course has Other Uses

Intermediate to advanced students will also find this course useful because it helps them work on ledge line reading and reading using other clefs. The obvious two clefs that any musician should be able to sight read with are the treble and bass clefs. Since most scores use these two clefs they are important to master. Five other clefs are included which can be used for sight transposition on any music to another key. There is an example below to show you how this works. Using clef transposition opens up worlds of new possibilities where not only can you play something in any key but you can also transpose melodies so that you are playing spur of the moment harmonizations. This is a fantastic and immense tool for a professional musician.

Sight Reading, Sight Singing and Key Center Development

The exercises in this series of books can be used in many ways. Besides being a great course for sight reading it also helps a student build their ability to sight sing through 22 of the most used scales in music. By working with these exercises a student also exposes themselves to the inherent sound of the 22 most used key centers in popular music. If you are student with limited exposure to the modes of Melodic Minor Ascending and other modes that are commonly used in music then this is an excellent place for you to start learning these sounds.

Course Content

The exercises start with super simple rhythms and grow in complexity over 22 books. You can access the book on many levels. A beginning student can just read through the clef of their choice and have each exercise slowly gain in complexity. An intemediate student can play exercises at a quicker tempo and really hone their ability with various rhythms. Intermediate to Advanced students can work on multiple octave transpositions and ledger lines above and below the staff. They can also work on clef transposition at a graduated pace.

What people are saying:

I've been waiting for this beginning sight reading/ear training course for awhile. This is really a comprehensive beginning music reading course and I love the fact that each book only uses one rhythm and that each book concentrates on one mode. B. Franks

The "Beat Reading" exercise is worth the cost of the entire collection. I've doubled my speed at sight reading in two weeks. This is awesome! R. Anderson

I'm using this course mostly for sight singing. I haven't read music before so I'm just using the treble clef versions and find them easy to read. T. Watts

This is the first course that I've found that teaches clef transposition. A super powerful idea that let's you read any piece of music in any key. Really appreciate you making this course. Y. Tyler
