Fall Sight-Reading Class

Thu, Sep 6 • 6:00 pm


Interested in being a better sight reader?

Join Derek Tam, First Church Berkeley's Director of Music, on an 8-week sight-reading course designed to help choral singers strengthen their musical sight-reading skills through guided practice. The course will begin on Thursday, September 6 and meet each week through October 24.

This class is intended for singers who have a basic understanding of music theory—know note names on treble and bass clef, understand basic rhythmic values (eighth note, quarter note, half note, whole note).

Maximum class size is 20.

Cost   $80 (payable to First Church Berkeley; collected on first day of class)

Materials (purchased before first class): Sing at First Sight, Book 1: Foundations in Choral Sight-Singing, by Beck/Surmani/Lewis (available at Amazon for $7.99 + S&H/tax). Supplementary materials will be provided in-class.

Contact Derek ( before August 20 to register

Singers are welcome to further hone their skills by participating in First Church's Sanctuary Choir, a volunteer ensemble that meets from 7–9 pm  immediately after the class.
