i was recently discussing the subject of sight reading with a fellow bandsman. he said there wasnt any such thing and that the information is there on paper for you to read. i thought he had a point but do others feel the same? i could personally do with improving my 'sight-reading' but do fellow tMPers think everything should be able to be played straight off? on a slightly different strain, sometimes the music is illegible and takes a while to figure out what is actually written! so what do you think about it?
