Sight-Reading Exercises for At-Home Practice


Now is the perfect time to work on sight-reading skills. Students can use their moments at home to strengthen their ability to quickly tackle different rhythms and melodies along with incorporating musical expression.

In the videos below, walk through steps that will help in each of these areas with Joseph Snyder, Music Publications Manager for Wingert-Jones Publications. Snyder has 17 years of teaching experience, and he has arranged for many bands and theatrical productions. In addition, Snyder is an active trombone and piano player who has performed with numerous professional musicians, including Pete Townshend, Debbie Gibson, The Monkees, Alexa Ray Joel, Tituss Burgess, and Paul Williams.
