QUOTE FROM THE AUTHOR'©Learning how to properly read standard notation and how to sightread were, without a doubt, the most beneficial skills I acquired in my formative years of bass playing. During those years, being able to read traditional sheet music opened many doors and provided many opportunities that I would not have had otherwise. Every single time I went to apply or audition for a gig, whether it was playing in the local orchestra for a theater performance or playing in jazz ensembles throughout high school and college, knowing how to read ©sheet music© was strictly required. Reflecting back on my years spent performing with these groups, I wouldn©t trade those for anything, as they were some of the most musically-fulfilling experiences I©ve had with the bass. Most importantly, performing with those groups quickly taught me some of the most essential skills when performing live music that still continue to be valuable today. For the aspiring bass player looking to get out and play, I can attest to the fact that being able to read standard notation allowed me to become a more marketable musician when applying and auditioning for any given musical opportunity©'"
