Schott ED 13054 ISMN 979-0-2201-2627-7

Saxophone Sight-Reading 2 aims to build on the sight-reading skills learnt in Book 1 and provide a wealth of more challenging examples so that the pupil may gain even greater confidence when approaching any new piece of music for the first time.

The five sections each gradually introduce new notes, rhythms, articulations, keys, Italian terms and musical styles in a logical sequence, much as you would find in a saxophone tutor. The emphasis is on providing idiomatic tunes and structures rather than sterile sight-reading exercises.

By John Kember and Graeme Vinall

First published in 2012, Saxophone Sight-Reading 2 is intended for Grades 6 to 8. It has 122 original tunes on 106 pages.
