Summary

Blending step-by-step guidance with frequent practice, this book helps readers cultivate an understanding of sight singing and acquire the necessary skills to hear mentally a piece of printed music "without" using an instrument. Arranging its 21 chapters to study both pitch and rhythm, this book presents melodies and exercises that enable readers to develop the skills of reading pitch, reading rhythm, and combining these two essential elements. The Sixth Edition contains nearly 1200 melodies taken from a wide spectrum of music literature and the world's folk music. For professionals with a career in music, music education, and composition.
