A Road Map to Musical Success by Jerry Estes.
This is a series of short exercises designed to address students’ lack of sight-reading skills within the limited rehearsal time teachers face daily. These reproducible exercises are easy-to-use and take only minutes at the beginning of each rehearsal or classroom period. This product can be easily adapted to your unique situation. An experienced chorus may sing an entire page using the exercises as a review, or a less experienced group could repeat a page during the second week. The exercises may be used as ìbookendsî for your rehearsals by having your students sing that day’s exercise at the beginning and then reinforcing that exercise by asking them to sing it again before leaving. Success and results are due to short and repetitive intervals in a daily routine. You will love the practicality of this new sight-reading series, its adaptability for all teachers’ situations, and, most importantly, its affordability!
