About this title


For courses in Music Theory (a two-year sequence including sight singing and ear training) as well as separate Sight Singing courses.


Using an abundance of meticulously organized melodies drawn from the literature of composed music and a wide range of the world’s folk music, Ottman provides the most engaging and comprehensive Sight Singing text on the market.


Over fifty years ago, Robert W. Ottman set out to write a book that draws examples from the literature as opposed to being composed by the author.  He proposed that students should work with "real" music as they study musical forms.  The result was Music for Sight Singing.  Not only is real music more enjoyable and  interesting to sing than dry examples, but genuine repertoire naturally introduces a host of important musical considerations beyond pitch and rhythm (including dynamics, accents, articulations, slurs, repeat signs, and tempo markings).  Several generations of teachers have also agreed that Ottman's ability to order his examples from the simple to the complex is another key to the book's long term success. Nancy Rogers, the book's new author, has added new vitality to the book, introducing exercises to develop creativity as well as to build basic skills.

From the Back Cover:

Music for Sight Singing, 8/e is the best-selling book for Music Theory students.  It features over 1700 examples, many drawn from “real music” that professors value and students enjoy singing.  With the passing of author Robert Ottman, new author Nancy Rogers has added new vitality to the book, introducing exercises to develop creativity as well as to build basic skills.
