Question 1170

This is the 1170 post on this blog.

I have no idea how to improve my sense of rhythms when it comes to playing sight-reading pieces. If the work is in common time, I could still manage with the rhythms. However, if the work is in time signatures such as 5/8, 6/8 or 9/8, I would find myself clueless whether I am playing in the right rhythms.

I wonder if my music theory teacher could help me on that. I shall remind myself to ask him on my upcoming lesson.

How does one train oneself up to be better in sight-reading?

play anything on sight. it helps. i even turn my book upside down when i run out of new scores to read. (or just plain lazy to go find another book.)

What misti said. Though reading upside down is something different. Never did that. Dizzy just thinking of it :)
