Sight Reading

If you’ve ever thought about learning to read music on bass and either gave up early or were too daunted to start, now is your chance to finally make it happen! In this pathway, Philip Mann takes you on a step-by-step journey from the basic building blocks of clefs and bar lines up to tricky, triplet and 16th note rhythms. The lessons never move too fast or skip over anything important, so you can feel confident in gaining a solid foundation in this important skill.


The SBL Sight Reading Pathway follows a course sequence of gradually increasing difficulty, with each course built upon the knowledge and skills taught in previous sections. To make sure you don’t miss anything, we recommend that you start from the beginning!
