DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Designed for course sequences in aural skills, Progressive Sight Singing, Third Edition, by Carol Krueger, presents students with the grammar and syntax of musical structure and prepares them to perceive that structure with both the ear and the eye. 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 flexibility to teach at a pace that suits the abilities and backgrounds of a particular class or course schedule. Features: a progressive approach introduces new elements one chapters at a time while reinforcing previously learned skills through graduated exercises, encouraging active practice ; An abundance of rhythm exercises eliminates the need for a separate rhythm text ; A variety of sight singing methodologies are accommodated throughout the text. New to this edition: Expanded and adjusted pacing of the rhythm sequence and an earlier introduction of simple meter aids in the development of the connection between sound and sight ; Addtional solo, duet, and multi-voice melodic exercises enhance aural and reading skills ; Expanded appendices include suggested harmony-chord progressions ; A free and open-access Companion website (www.oup.com/us/krueger) offers recordings for aural dictation, solutions to exercises, flashcards, expanded vocal pitch exercises/graphs, and many additional melodic and rhythm exercises. -- from back cover.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

First and foremost: THIS IS NOT A METHOD BOOK. It is precisely what it says it is: 300 Progressive Sight Reading Exercises! Volume One is comprised of 300 progressive eight-bar exercises that cover the keys of C Major, F Major, G Major, A Minor, D Minor and E Minor. Time signatures include 4/4 (Common Time), 3/4, 2/4, 6/8, and 2/2 (Cut Time). The remaining key signatures, additional time signatures, tempo markings and dynamics markings will be covered in future volumes. All of the exercises are eight measures long. If one has done any study of formal analysis, they will find that eight measures is a typical 'period' of music and usually contains two, four-bar phrases (also typical in length). For example, many sonatinas, jazz standards, and pop songs use "32 Bar Form" (A A B A), "Binary Form" (A B), and "Ternary Form" (A B A), with each section often being eight bars. Thus, eight measures (one period of music) makes the perfect length for sight-reading studies in my opinion. How to use this book: Start where the exercises begin and work across the book - from exercise 1, 5, 9, 13 and so on until you get to a point where the music challenges you and then mark your ending point. The next practice, play exercises 2, 6, 10, 14, and so on... The next: 3, 7, 11, 15 and so on, and finally 4, 8, 12, 16, and so on. If you want to work at your "break point" (the point in the book where you can no longer play musically), work DOWN the page instead of across the pages. Note: This book is also available in a LARGE PRINT version that for printing purposes had to be divided into two books. If you have poor vision or want this book to be easy to SEE on an electronic device, you might prefer the Large Print Version. "These books differ from conventional 'methods' in that technical and theoretical instructions have been omitted, in the belief that these are more appropriately left for the teacher to explain to the student." - Bela Bartok, Mikrokosmos. I whole-heartedly agree with Bartok's sentiment and if music teachers would ask their students what they like least (or hate the most) about typical lessons, it is the method books that win this contest EVERY TIME. I have completely eliminated method books from my own teaching practice and have much happier and more productive students than ever. While this book is intended to train sight-reading skills, it may also be used by beginners or those new to reading to acquire basic reading skills, but it assumes one either has a teacher or can at least find C on their instrument. It starts at a very basic level (only three notes) and adds a new note, rhythm, or concept every four exercises and thoroughly reinforces them throughout the rest of the book. Next, the music's composition is a slave to its function: The purpose of the books is to train reading skill, and the exercises keep challenging the range that has been established by previous exercises as well as less-than-convenient intervalic skips. They are composed from a 'music-first' perspective, as opposed to an 'instrument-first' perspective, and are purposely composed to be difficult to memorize. For example, the first exercises begin on C because they are in the key of C, and then go on to sometimes start and end on different scale degrees of the same key. Those familiar with the Fundamental Modes will likely recognize what they are hearing, but those unfamiliar with these modes will likely be hearing something that sounds a bit different, or odd, until their ears acclimate to these sounds. I see many students go through this process with altered dominants and augmented triads as well. Additionally, a 20th-century composition technique (Bartok, Stravinsky) - Serial Composition - has also been used on several of the pieces, so if your ears are unfamiliar with this type of music, you might at first be uncomfortable with what you are hearing.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

First and foremost: THIS IS NOT A METHOD BOOK. It is precisely what it says it is: 300 Progressive Sight Reading Exercises! Volume One is comprised of 300 progressive eight-bar exercises that train reading skills for both hands equally: Half of the pieces emphasize the right hand, the other half emphasize the left. The first 32 exercises isolate the hands while the remaining exercises combine them. For most of the exercises, the de-emphasized hand stays within a single five-finger position. Time signatures include 4/4 (Common Time), 3/4, 2/4, 6/8, and 2/2 (Cut Time). This entire first volume is in C Major or its relative modes. Key signatures, accidentals, dynamics, tempo, and expressive markings will be covered in future volumes. All of the exercises are eight measures long. If one has done any study of formal analysis, they will find that eight measures is a typical 'period' of music and usually contains two, four-bar phrases (also typical in length). For example, many sonatinas, jazz standards, and pop songs use "32 Bar Form" (A A B A), "Binary Form" (A B), and "Ternary Form" (A B A), with each section often being eight bars.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Learn the basics of sight singing in 7 days with this innovative book! Sight Singing for Beginners Level I is a comprehensive, and progressive audio course for group or self study. It is an effective method in a variety of situations, including self-study, private music lessons, for singers in school, college, church and community choirs. This course is a compact introduction to the basics of sight singing and adds more complicated elements one by one. There are sight singing examples and exercises used in each chapter with a recorded vocal example to check yourself. To listen to a selected exercise, click on the Hear button on supported devices, or visit goo.gl/L9ezwA online. You can hear the example with a metronome to help you understand the rhythm. The note set, which is all the notes used in the example, is given above each example block. When you sing, try to grasp an entire phrase as a musical entity avoiding note to note singing. You should practice a melody several times, if necessary, until ease and fluency are achieved. It is helpful to beat time as you sing, or you may use standard conducting patterns. This book recommends singing in Solfege (fixed Do) system for sight singing music (any other system will work as well). The system applies standard syllables to the notes (Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do). Singing with solfege syllables makes it easier to hear and remember the sound of intervals and facilitates developing perfect pitch. In this system, the pitch C is always Do. Knowing how to read music will give you the confidence you need to improve as a singer/musician. Give yourself time to learn to sight sing. It takes a lot of practice and patience to develop a strong foundation in reading rhythms and sight singing melodies."
