A comprehensive, student-centered, and flexible introduction to sight singing, Progressive Sight Singing, Second Edition, by Carol Krueger, presents students with the underlying grammar and syntax of musical structure and prepares them to perceive that structure with both the ear and the eye. Working from the premise that students learn musical skills in much the same order as they do language skills, the book trains the ear first--through hearing and imitating patterns--before teaching students to read and write.
Divided into two parts, the text presents rhythmic exercises in Part I and melodic exercises in Part II. The two sections can be used concurrently over a four-semester course sequence, giving instructors the flexibility to teach at a pace that suits the abilities and backgrounds of a particular class or course schedule.
· Adds only one new element per chapter and incorporates components from previous chapters into examples and exercises, continuously reinforcing learned skills
· Integrates a rich variety of well-paced, graduated exercises for classroom study and individual practice outside of class
· Includes an abundance of rhythmic exercises, eliminating the need for a separate rhythm text
· Encourages students to participate actively (sing, chant, write, improvise) in the practice of each concept
· Offers instructors great flexibility in that they can use the tonal and reading systems they prefer; the appendixes provide a brief overview of each system
