  • Choosing the proper position in which to play a given passage and how to most efficiently change from one position to another.
  • Reading and counting syncopated, complex rhythms.
  • Interpreting and executing phrasing and dynamic markings
  • Identifying how and what to practice, making the process interesting and fun.

Sight-reading materials represent a variety of styles and genres.
