Sight-reading is commonly used term by musicians for the reading of a piece of written music, specifically when the performer has not seen it before (ital. prima vista, which means to play music at first sight).

   This technique is neccesary to every future musicianinstrumentalist, and therefore it needs to be learned.

      Usually, before rehearsal, orchestra musicians get their parts (musical sections that they play) and read them slightly. After that, a joint rehearsal starts – a group playing (playing in the group or orchestra).
