Music for Sight Singing will serve you well as the most celebrated, engaging, and musical sight-singing text on the market. Real music exercises will 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. The text is structured around organized melodies, drawn from the literature of composed music and a wide range of folk music.

The 10th Edition includes even more melodies, while retaining the simple-to-complex arrangement designed for learning success. Several new topics have been added, including improved introductions to minor keys, pre-dominant leaps, and chromaticism, along with increased use of bass and C clefs.
