9780205938339: Music for Sight Singing (9th Edition)

The most engaging and musical Sight-Singing text on the market.

 

Music for Sight Singing is structured around organized melodiesdrawn from the literature of composed music and a wide range of the world’s folk music. Real music exercises allow readers to practice sight singing and develop their “mind’s ear” – the ability to imagine how music sounds without first playing it on an instrument.

 

The ninth edition continues to introduce a host of important musical considerations beyond pitch and rhythm- including dynamics, accents, articulations, slurs, repeat signs, and tempo markings. The book’s arrangement of simple to complex exercises lays the foundations for success.

 

 

Learning Goals

Upon completing this book, readers will be able to:

  • Fluently read rhythms in simple and compound meters, including those in relatively unusual, irregular, or changing meter signatures.
  • Sight sing melodies in any major or minor key, and in any diatonic mode.
  • Effortlessly read all four common clefs.
  • Understand common musical symbols and terms.
  • Recognize and sing important harmonic features such as dominant seventh and Neapolitan chords.
  • Improvise effectively from a variety of background structures such as a harmonic progression or an underlying contrapuntal framework.
  • Negotiate chromatic passages from simple embellishing tones and tonicizations to modulations to post-tonal music.

Review:

 

“The carefully graded nature of the examples makes it appropriate for all four semesters of our course sequence and. [The text] meets our need well and has stood the test of time.”

        - Robert Mills, Liberty University

 

The most significant challenge facing the students is developing the skills and abilities quickly enough to maintain pace with the curriculum. I believe it is more of a time issue (lack of practice time, or student choice to avoid practice) than a curriculum pacing issue. This text responds very nicely to this challenge; we have the freedom to set the pace as needed to sufficiently challenge, but not overwhelm, the student population.”

        - William Harbinson, Appalachian State University

 

“The most important feature of any aural skills and sight-singing book is that it includes real musical examples. For this alone, Music for Sight Singing is indispensable.”

        -  Jill T. Brasky, University of South Florida

 

“The sequence is logical. Progression from quarter to other note values is excellent. It is a great introduction to rhythms, one step at a time.”

        -  James Hutching, Carl Sandburg College
