THE EASY WAY TO SIGHT-READ RHYTHMS
IS THERE A SHORTCUT TO LEARN HOW TO
Well, this book may be the answer to that question! Here you’ll find almost 200 pages of instructions and exercises that will make you an excellent sight-reader of rhythms in no time! The unique method for sight-reading in this book uses the same principle as learning a new language. It incorporates the ear and helps you develop the ability to quickly identify patterns, here called ”rhythm-pictures”. This book was first released in Swedish in 1996 as ”A vista-teknik, hur du blir en bättre notläsare, del 1 – rytmbilder”. It soon became the standard material for music schools and musicians when it comes to sight-reading rhythms. Now it has finally been translated into English!
