Sight Reading Success

recommended by Jen Sper, School Choral Music Specialist

In my work with local choir directors here in Ohio, and even across the country, one of the most common inquiries I receive is for “more 4-part sight reading exercises!!” Preparing for the sight reading portion of adjudicated choral events can be stressful for a lot of teachers, and many of the popular sight reading methods only include unison melodies.

I was excited when “Sight Reading Success” by Stan McGill came across my desk, because I knew it would be perfect for these teachers! This resource is designed to help secondary choir students improve their music literacy skills. With 180 (!!) SATB exercises divided into 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 measure sets, even beginning groups can develop advanced skills over a relatively short period of time. The exercises are included in the book and as a free download for projecting to a screen or distributing to students via print or tablet.

For more sight reading resources and recommendations, visit our website or contact us! Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
