"The ability to sight-read fluently is a vital skill, enabling you to learn new pieces more quickly and to play with other musicians. [This] series by renowned educator Paul Harris is designed to help you overcome all your sight-reading problems and gain confidence. Step by step you build a complete picture of each piece, firstly through rhythmic and melodic exercises related to specific technical issues, then by studying prepared pieces with associated questions, and finally 'going solo' with a series of meticulously graded sight-reading pieces."--

This book for the classical guitar has been compiled to improve sight reading, an often neglected aspect of musicianship. With the guitar, musical components (scales, chords, arpeggios, etc.) may often be played in various positions. While this is one of the reasons that the instrument produces such colorful and interesting timbres, it also contributes to the difficulties of sight reading. It is important to develop facility in reading, recognizing the notes, as well as the bar positions in which to play them, the fingerings, the rhythmic patterns, and any markings if interpretation (dynamics, phrasing, articulation, etc.). This book provides an orderly and systematic approach to the study of sight reading, based upon standards for sight reading for the classical guitar found in respected schools around the world.

Rhythm Only Book 1 Eighths and Sixteenths Assorted Meters

This collection presents the user with a series of increasingly difficult rhythms on a single pitch. The rhythmic material in this series is organized into 10 difficulty levels. Each difficulty level contains four exercises in each of the following time signatures: 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 6/8, 9/8, and 12/8. This gives exercises in 2, 3, and 4 beats per bar in both simple and compound meters. The first two exercises of each time signature have no ties while the remaining two exercises in each time signature include ties. In Book 1 of this series you’ll find difficulty levels 1 to 5, while Book 2 completes the set with levels 6 to 10. To curate the difficulty levels I looked at all of the possible ways we can use eighth-notes and sixteenth-notes to subdivide a single beat without the use of tuplets. The lowest difficulty level is comprised of the easiest of these one-beat rhythmic groupings. Subsequent difficulty levels include more challenging groupings while continuing to use the easier ones from previous chapters. In this way the difficulty levels are cumulative: level 1 uses only the easiest groupings, but by level 9, all of the possible rhythmic groupings have been introduced. Level 10 increases the density of challenging groupings by omitting the easier ones. The introductory page of each chapter introduces the rhythmic groupings that will be added or omitted in that chapter. On some occasions rhythmic groupings are respelled; however, these new spellings are not formally introduced at the beginning of the chapter. The exercises in this collection are intentionally random and difficult to internalize. In keeping the rhythmic material as unpredictable as possible the door is left open for the materials to be used in many ways. It also forces the user to process every rhythm as its own event without relying on pattern recognition for help. Some suggestions for how to use this book include: Practice sight-reading. The goal in practising sight-reading is not to learn the material but to develop the skill of reading new material. When practising sight-reading I encourage you to cycle through exercises quickly rather than mastering each one. Use a metronome! The most important thing you can do with this material is learn how to read these rhythms and play them in time. Advanced metronome work: Placing the metronome click on non-strong beats forces you to take responsibility for the time in a different way and trains you to hear how your rhythm relates to each subdivision of the beat. For example, instead of putting the metronome click on each quarter-note in 4/4, play the exercise with the metronome giving the second eighth note of each beat, or the last sixteenth note, or beats 2 and 4, or every third sixteenth note. Be creative with this one; the possibilities are limitless! Develop independence between hands by playing a repeating pattern in one hand while reading an exercise in the other. Expand on this by adding patterns in hands and feet while reading a rhythm with a remaining limb. This is a great exercise for drummers and percussionists but any instrumentalist could benefit from coordination practice. Use these rhythms to practice scales. Instead of playing scales in straight sixteenth-notes, try playing them in the rhythms given in these exercises. Write in sticking patterns, dynamics, accents, phrase marks, or other articulations for you or your students to practice. If you’re not happy with the ties I included, feel free to add some of your own. Combine the above exercises in any way that you think will be beneficial to your practice. As with any of the Dots and Beams books, the uses for this particular collection are limited only by the imagination of the musician using it. I encourage anybody using this book to find as many uses for these exercises as possible.

Sight reading and ear training are two of the most important skills for any musician. Consequently, they should be developed systematically with performance, technical and theoretical skills from the time that keyboard study begins. As new concepts are introduced in the LESSONS book, they are reinforced visually and aurally in SIGHT READING AND EAR TRAINING. These books can be used with equal success in private and group lessons. The reading exercises are based on the premise that students develop secure reading skills by first playing in specific patterns and gradually moving out of these patterns. The recognition of intervals is crucial to the development of good reading habits. In addition, students must be able to quickly identify individual notes and patterns (melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic).

In this updated and expanded edition of The Cambridge Handbook of Expertise and Expert Performance, some of the world's foremost experts on expertise share their scientific knowledge of expertise and expert performance and show how experts may differ from non-experts in terms of development, training, reasoning, knowledge, and social support. The book reviews innovative methods for measuring experts' knowledge and performance in relevant tasks. Sixteen major domains of expertise are covered, including sports, music, medicine, business, writing, and drawing, with leading researchers summarizing their knowledge about the structure and acquisition of expert skills and knowledge, and discussing future prospects. General issues that cut across most domains are reviewed in chapters on various aspects of expertise, such as general and practical intelligence, differences in brain activity, self-regulated learning, deliberate practice, aging, knowledge management, and creativity.
