John Kember/Graeme Vinall: Saxophone Sight Reading - Volume 1

Books | Saxophone

Publisher: Schott Music
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
Saxophone Sight-Reading 1 aims to establish good practice and provide an early introduction to the essential skill of sight-reading.

Sight-reading in some form should become a regular part of a student's routine each time they get out the saxophone, and this book aims to establish the habit early in a student's learning process.

There are 8 sections, which in a logical sequence gradually introduce new notes, rhythms, articulations, dynamics and Italian terms - much as you would find in a beginner's saxophone method. The emphasis is on providing idiomatic tunes and structures rather than sterile sight-reading exercises.

Each section contains several solo examples, beginning with only three notes, and concludes with duets and accompanied pieces, allowing the student to gain experience of sight-reading within the context of ensemble playing.
