What a great way to start a rehearsal! You'll want to have Sight-Reading Studies in your folders all the time. Use your usual scale/chorale style warm-ups to put the band's tone quality and intonation in good order - consider using Tone Studies (44000068) or Tone Studies 2 (44000603). Then use James Curnow's new Sight-Reading Studies for a few minutes to put their brains in gear. This great new addition to the ESSENTIALS OF MUSICIANSHIP series of publications by Curnow Music Press makes the players start thinking about articulations, dynamics, rhythmic accuracy, key signatures, accidentals and much more right away. Indispensable!
