A good sight reading book for flute?

Postby pinkdaisy » Sat Nov 24, 2012 4:26 pm

I'm looking for a book to improve my sight reading, but I'm not sure what would be appropriate for my level.
I play for my high school band. I've been taking private lessons weekly for 6 years. I'm on Suzuki Flute Volume 7 currently learning Hungarian Pastoral Fantasy by Doppler. Any suggestions at all would be appreciated.

Orchestral excerpts books maybe would help you.

Joseph Viola (Berklee Music) has a series out for flute (and sax) with one volume devoted to rhythm studies. Fairly challenging syncopated sight-reading material.
