Sight Singing

Freshon the market, this interactive book helps those musically inclined developtheir acumen in sight singing. Organizing each chapter around one musicalproblem and one rhythmic problem, it contains traditional sight singingmaterials as well as exercises for composition and analysis, improvisation, andtransportation. Beginning with an extensive foreword by an acknowledgedexpert in the field of music theory pedagogy and aural skills, the bookexplains how to hear patterns in relation to a tonal center - or, in atonalpatterns, how to relate the acquired knowledge from tonal studies to patternsthat do not revolve around a tonal center. It presents hundreds of melodiesalongside representative works from music literature which are divided in twocategories: 1) pedagogically effective tunes that focus on a single problem andinclude sufficient repetition to insure user mastery, and; 2) melodies spanningthe entire range of music literature from the Renaissance to the present dayand representing problems in the context of major works of art. It provideswarm-up activities that allow users to focus on one problem at a time (i.e.,common rhythmic patterns without melodic complications, or pitch patternswithout changing rhythms), and offers a variety of ensembles, bothnewly-composed and from the literature. It also includes an extensive glossaryof foreign musical terms and symbols. For musicians, composers,and others in the field of music.
