A new sight reading book featuring 34 all original exercises. The exercises progress from an easier level of difficulty to more challenging ones. Also includes a second staff with chord changes. The chord staff includes rhythm and slash marks as well. Styles range from jazz standard type tunes to bossa nova, straight 8th, waltzes and modern jazz.

Each reading example highlights a particular rhythm or concept and develops systematically becoming more challenging with each exercise.
