Hi Guys, I sat my Rockschool Grade 3 exam yesterday and I'm very disappointed at my performance. I absolutely have been studying for it but my sight-reading (among some other hiccups) let me down a bit. I have been practicting about 3 times a week for at least 30 mins (probably more) at a time. Chec k out the level with which I'm struggling and you'll agree I'm no sight-reading expert. http://www.rockschool.co.uk/sightreading/bass/grade3/sight_b3.htm I can read it ... I just can't sail through it first time without pausing. I get it right on the second passing, however. My question ... Should I be transcribing more? How much more? Should I reduce my sight-reading practice time to 20mins * 7 days a week? I'm hoping to aim for Rockschool Grade 4 in June 2004 so I really need to address this weakness (plus, I want to learn this skill anyway). Any tips/suggestions are most welcome !! Thanks Guys, Rob.
