(Beginning to Intermediate)
Oboe Sight-Reading 1 is an approach based on self-learning and recognition of rhythmic and melodic patterns. It uses original tunes rather than abstract sight-reading exercises. There are 195 carefully graded pieces in a range of musical styles.
Eight sections, related to the technical development of the oboist, with tunes using three notes to tunes with a range of nearly two octaves, from low D to high C. Each section concludes with a set of duets and accompanied pieces for practice of ensemble sight-reading. Tunes progress to all key signatures, up to two sharps and flats.
