If you ask one hundred musicians -- in any style of music -- what they wish they could do better, sight-reading is a skill that shows up on nearly everyone's list! So here is Sight-Reading Samurai, a new book intended to address one of the most common problems that all musicians face — the ability to read music better at sight. Saxophonist, composer, and author Marcus Monteiro has come up with a system of sight-reading that addresses one of the biggest obstacles to practicing this skill. The problem is that once you’ve played through most music you are now 'reading it' if you play it again and you are no longer sight-reading. Essentially you’re just practicing the music, which is great, but it's not helping your sight-reading skills develop. With Monteiro’s innovative system, these forty (40) 24-bar etudes are useable again and again and in many different ways and will provide an intense level of training. This book is a powerful new tool for you to start improving your sight-reading abilities today. Get your copy today!
