Five Minutes to Reading Music: A Road Map to Musical Success By Jerry Estes Book 48 pages A series of short exercises designed to address the lack of students' sight-reading skills within the limited rehearsal time. These reproducible exercises are easy-to-use and take only 3-5 minutes at the beginning of each rehearsal or classroom period. This product can be easily adapted to your unique situation. Success and results are due to short and repetitive intervals in a daily routine. Fun graphics mark the sight-reading journey. The book meets several National Standards for Music Education (listed on the book). Road Trips 1 and 2 are arranged in 2-part mixed voicing and emphasize melodic elements with no variance in rhythms.;Road Trips 3 and 4 include the addition of exercises written in contrapuntal style, more advanced rhythmic patterns, minor keys and 3/4 time signature. The baritone part never exceeds a range of a 5th. Movable Do is used. For mixed or treble choruses.
