Sight Reading

Each choir must perform one rhythmic exercise and one melodic exercise from the book of exercises provided. After consultation with the judge, the director will choose from the exercises appropriate to the group. The exercises are composed based on the MPA sight reading criteria. Directors are encouraged to use these criteria and the minimum requirements document below to help you determine which examples your students will perform.

The procedures and rules for district sight-reading are laid out in Section IV:F of the FVA Handbook.
