Auditions are coming up for my school line and I am going for tenors. I am working on sight reading at the moment and need a source of sheet music so i can sight read a song pretty much every day for a month. If you know of any sources or have any sheet music replying to this thread would make me very grateful.

Thank You,
Jason

Jason... what is your audition format? Is the sight-reading like 4 bars, or is it is a whole piece? How much time are you given to review the sheet before you play? How heavily weighted is sight reading in your overall audition?

I would really like to know your overall format. I have guys that fumble through the entire set and don't score well. I also have a few folks that have figured out where to put their eggs, and they score well every year.

Actually there isn't a sight reading part of the audition and I am given a week to look at the music but this is part of my learning process. I have asked the Percussion Director why there isn't sight reading and he says there isn't much point in our line because he knows how well everyone reads

Interesting... well if you are looking to sight read something, then just grab any tenor book and chunk it out. Take 3 or 4 bars at a time. Grab a corps book and run warmups. Run the grid generator on this site. Take a beat you know and write it out in reverse. I think this is the start of a long thread of people suggesting where you can get fresh beats. That's the point of sight reading isn't it? Having the proficiency and flexibility to take a fresh beat and make some sense of it.

I don't sight read auditions, because there is no point to it. We don't sight read a show. Besides, what do I do with a kid who can't sight read? They are still gonna be on the drumline somewhere.

Where do I find these "tenor books" and "corps books"? I am still relatively new to the internet side of drumming.
Thanks for the help

This

Also... tapspace, and rowloff

Heck, I know you are looking at tenor exercises, but there is an entire career worth of "sight-reading" in G.L. Stone's "Stick Control"

Also, (I forgot, like an idiot).. browse around college drumline websites. They tend to post their exercises. http://www.msu.edu/~drumline
