In order to be prepared to read through any piece of music, the serious musician must be able to recognize, read and play rhythms fluidly. Unlike other books of this kind, the exercises given contain complex syncopations which approximate the experience of reading through a sophisticated jazz composition or a contemporary classical piece. This 100 page book will prepare the serious musician for a life of sight-reading rhythmically complex charts. This book applies both eighth and sixteenth note rhythms to odd meter combinations. All examples use one pitch, allowing the student to focus completely on time and rhythm on the instrument of their choice. All exercises can be downloaded from the internet to facilitate correct practice, and aid internalization. This book is a required text at New York Universities and Princeton University Music department.
