A Self-Teaching Course for All Musicians and All Instruments Sight Reading Rhythm was originally used as a tool to help drummers improve their sight reading skills. It soon became apparent that other musicians were also interested in improving their rhythmic sight reading. This book covers the breaking down and reading of rhythm patterns and sight reading. Zimmerman explains how to get around "charts" using "Road Maps" and how to apply melody to rhythm exercises. Highlights include a CD containing all of the exercises and special metronome tracks for practice, a section especially for drummers and plenty of supplementary exercises. ©2006, Book & CD.
