I am a third year bass student who is still very poor at sight reading. I am a competent bassist with a good knowledge of theory but I have always been very slack and un interested in sight reading until I was told at my University as of late June we will be getting assessed on our sight reading. We will be given sheet music on the morning of our assessment and then we have 10 minutes to look it over before we are put in a recording studio and told to perform the songs. How does one go about becoming a competent at sight reader? What is some tips, tricks or just general advice you guys would give to someone like me? What are some good techniques for practicing sight reading? I am aware that I have a lot of hours of practice a head of me.
