Instrumental Sight-Reading

Students in each instrumental area are expected to achieve minimum sight-reading proficiency. Those students not meeting basic program proficiency goals in their placement tests are assigned to reading labs that address the diverse sight-reading situations that confront today’s instrumentalists. Sight-reading labs are conducted for all instrument groups, including piano, guitar, bass, drums, reeds, and brass (vocalists are accommodated in sight-singing courses—see Vocal Courses which begin on page 15). 1 credit
