Joining the Dots offers guitarists lots of material to help build confidence and skill in sight-reading. The series brings together a range of activities to help students improve their sense of fingerboard geography, helping them to read new music more quickly and easily.

The five books cover the requirements for ABRSM's sight-reading tests at each of Grades 1 to 5, and include:

• many short, characterful pieces to sight-read, in a range of approachable musical styles
• warm-up and technical exercises, to establish basic hand shapes and finger patterns within each key
• simple improvisation exercises in which students can explore musical ideas and familiarize themselves further with the 'feel' of each key
• longer solo pieces and some duets and trios, for additional sight-reading practice or to learn quickly and play through for fun

Alan Bullard is a composer and ABRSM examiner. He studied at the Royal College of Music and the University of Nottingham, and taught in further and higher education for many years

Richard Wright teaches guitar at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Royal College of Music. He helped devise the ABRSM Guitar syllabus (from 2009).
