Summary

Students of music are faced with the challenge of developing their aural skills to the point at which they can see music on the page with thoughtful, trained eyes and hear it with their mind’s ear. Sight Singing Complete, leads students to this point by beginning with the familiar and moving gently toward the unfamiliar until they are transforming symbol into sound and improvising in all idioms. The 8th edition of Sight Singing Complete preserves the multi-faced pedagogical approach and the commitment to historical repertoire from the seventh edition.

New to this edition is an integrated approach to rhythm and performance — This edition is unusual in that we not only expect student to master each skill by itself, we also expect them to integrate all three skills in carefully designed sequence of “Play + Sing” exercises adapted from 18th – 21st century instrumental and vocal repertoire.
