A course for advanced woodwind students wishing to improve their sight-reading skills. Reading exercises will cover a wide range of styles including swing, bebop, funk, Latin, odd-meter jazz, and various studio styles. The course will draw heavily from the required text Creative Reading Studies by Joseph Viola. Other materials to be used include selected ‚études, transcribed solos, and exercises designed by the instructor(s). The course will focus primarily on line reading, although exercises that target chord-change reading may also be included.
