Summary

For freshman/sophomore-level courses in any Music Theory curriculum. Blending step-by-step guidance with frequent practice, this text helps students cultivate an understanding of sight singing and develop the skills to hear mentally a piece of printed music without using an instrument. It features a finely organized collection of melodies taken from music literature, ranging mostly from fundamental works of the past to representative excerpts taken from recent twentieth-century music.
