Sight Reading

Jazz Reading Elements

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. Not a “How To” book on reading but rather a collection of interesting and musical exercises to read. The PDF is 75 pages.

As this is a sight reading book, there are no tabs and no audio examples. Jazz Reading Elements is purely a sight reading book filled with music reading exercises. Each reading example highlights a particular rhythm or concept and develops systematically becoming more challenging with each exercise.

This PDF version of “Jazz Reading Elements” works on any platform including Windows PC’s, Chrome OS, Linux, iOS, Mac OS and most devices that can open a PDF file. It is “fixed layout” and not reflowable. For best viewing results, the most current version of any PDF Reader is recommended.
