Music for Sight Singing is structured around organized melodiesdrawn from the literature of composed music and a wide range of the world's folk music.Real music exercises allow readers to practice sight singing and develop their “mind's ear” – the ability to imagine how music sounds without first playing it on an instrument. The ninth edition continues to introduce a host of important musical considerations beyond pitch and rhythm- including dynamics, accents, articulations, slurs, repeat signs, and tempo markings. The book's arrangement of simple to complex exercises lays the foundations for success. Learning Goals Upon completing this book, readers will be able to: Fluently read rhythms in simple and compound meters, including those in relatively unusual, irregular, or changing meter signatures. Sight sing melodies in any major or minor key, and in any diatonic mode. Effortlessly read all four common clefs. Understand common musical symbols and terms. Recognize and sing important harmonic features such as dominant seventh and Neapolitan chords. Improvise effectively from a variety of background structures such as a harmonic progression or an underlying contrapuntal framework. Negotiate chromatic passages from simple embellishing tones and tonicizations to modulations to post-tonal music.

From the FOREWORD. In writing this book my aim has been not only to show the student how to manage and use the various possibilities, but also when to introduce them - a point which is obviously of prime importance. One so often encounters students who can talk glibly about the "" treatment "" of all kinds of chords, but who seem not to have the slightest idea of when to use them, or how to know when their use is implied in a given part. While the harmonisation of a melody or a bass is to a great extent dependent on the musical sensibility of the student, it has to be realised that certain melodic progressions imply, normally, certain definite harmonies, and these implications I have tried to make clear. Elementary work, at least, is largely compounded of commonplaces, and my object has been as far as possible to show how the underlying commonplace may be ""spotted."" The treatment of certain matters has been deliberately restricted and limited for the sake of clarity and simplicity.

(Music Pro Guide Books & DVDs). Most choirs spend their rehearsal time focusing on notes, rhythms, and precision. They rarely, if ever, discuss a song's meaning and feeling, even though those elements are precisely what draws people to the music in the first place. Thousands of books have been written about choral technique, teaching people how to sing technically well. What sets The Heart of Vocal Harmony apart is its focus on honest unified expression and the process of delivering an emotionally compelling performance. It delves into an underdeveloped vocal topic the heart of the music and the process involved with expressing it. The Heart of Vocal Harmony is not just for a cappella groups it is also for vocal harmony groups, ensembles, and choirs at all levels, with or without instruments. In addition to the process, the book features discussions with some of the biggest luminaries in vocal harmony: composers, arrangers, directors, singers, and groups including Eric Whitacre, Pentatonix, the Manhattan Transfer, and more!
