Sight Reading for Strings includes 115 exercises in duet form, student and teacher for sight reading work at the lesson, ranging from open strings with quarter notes to complex rhythms in 14 different keys and several meters, some position work and double stops. Teacher plays with the student the first time, and on the repeat s/he plays the teacher's part and leaves the student to hold his own on the student part. Once the student has finished the book, he starts it over and plays the teacher's part all the way through the book.Teachers will appreciate the Wohlfhart duet etudes, which are extremely musical, but never familiar, so the student cannot play by ear as he is reading, as well as the broad range of musical signs not usually found in solo repertoire, including measure repeat signs, repetitive rhythm shorthand, and Italian terms, e.g., sul ponticello, con & senza sordino, col legno, sotto voce, and scores of others, D.C, D.S, Coda, and tempo and articulation terms and signs. Students should begin SRS once they have completed about 15-20 lessons in the Primer exercises or as recommended by their teacher, and continue after they finish the Primer, on through the Advanced Etudes and Advanced Rhythms.

Prepared and edited by Rick Mooney, a well-known Suzuki teacher, teacher-trainer and member of the Suzuki Cello Committee, these books contain harmony parts to go with many of the pieces in the Suzuki Cello School, Volumes 1, 2 and 3. All of these pieces have been arranged to resemble, as much as possible, the existing piano accompaniments. These ensembles enable a cello teacher (who does not play or have access to a piano) to play harmony parts with students to prepare them for the time when a piano and pianist are available. Also, these parts give additional challenges for the more advanced player during a group lesson. Titles: * Long, Long Ago (T.H. Bayly) * Maytime Komm Lieber Mai from Sehnsucht nach dem Frühlinge, K. 596 (duet & quartet) (W.A. Mozart) * Minuet No. 1, Minuet II from Suite in G Minor for Klavier, BWV 822 (J.S. Bach) * Minuet No. 3, Minuet in C, BWV Anh. II 114/Anh. III 183 (J.S. Bach) * Chorus from Judas Maccabaeus (G.F.
