#beginquote# You are absolutely correct. I, myself, am 23 and I started music lessons when I was in high school. Although sight reading is a kick in the face, it is a very important task to master. After all, that is how I make my money as a musician. Most of the professional bands I play with do not rehearse, and therefore 75% of the gigs that I play are sight reading gigs. Ironically, I have sight reading gigs starting next Monday night and running every night through the 5th of February (sometimes two gigs a night)!! Busy Mardi Gras season as usual. I have seen people in these bands that can not cut it as a sight reader and are not called back for the next gig. Just shows how important sight reading is for a musician! Practice Practice Practice!! #endquote#
