Overview

Music for Sight Singing is the most celebrated, engaging and musical sight-singing text on the market. Author Nancy Rogers explores organized melodies, drawn from the literature of composed music and a wide range of the world's folk music. Authentic music exercises allow you to practice sight singing and develop your “mind's ear,” the ability to imagine how music sounds without first playing it on an instrument. A simple-to-complex arrangement lays the foundation for success.

The 10th Edition offers a range of new content. The author introduces the minor mode more gradually, and presents leaps outside of the tonic and dominant harmonies more systematically. Fresh sections address mode mixture and augmented-sixth chords.
