An essential part of musicianship! This realistic first-year program of sight singing and ear training presents a broadly based approach to music reading as an essential and integral part of musicianship and exhibits a sharp focus on essential skills. The authors developed and tested the materials in their classes at the Juilliard School of Music, refining them to enhance accessibility and improve learning. Special features include: arranges specific concepts and problems in a carefully graded order based upon performance difficulty; isolates specific rhythmic and pitch problems and then drills them in a concentrated form but in a variety of music contexts; includes copious examples of each problem in actual music; stimulates readers' creative imagination through the consistent employment of assignments that require original work.
