From the Publisher:

Ottman blends step-by-step guidance with frequent practice to cultivate an understanding of and the skills for sight singing--the ability to hear mentally a piece of printed music without using an instrument. The Fourth Edition provides a finely organized collection of melodies taken from music literature mostly ranging from fundamental works of the past to representative excerpts taken from recent twentieth-century music.

From the Back Cover:

This versatile volume presents a collection of melodies carefully selected for their capacity to develop sight singing ability. Featuring singing material from folk music and the literature of composed music, Music for Sight Singing, Fifth Edition continues to expose students to a wide range of musical styles. All melodies are graded according to both rhythmic and melodic difficulty and progress from the easiest materials to more complex.

Featuring over one thousand melodies and exercises, each chapter presents a new problem in either rhythm or melody, allowing students to study one problem at a time—but giving them experience in performing both rhythmic and melodic patterns. In addition, the following revisions have been carefully incorporated to enhance t lie overall presentation:

  • More easy melodic examples in the earlier chapters.
  • Expanded chapter on "Modulation to the Dominant."
  • Singing range of many melodies lowered in order to avoid high notes.
  • Difficult key signatures found at the end of earlier chapters, as a separate presentation.
  • More instructional materials.
  • More suggestions for alternative presentations of sight singing materials.
