Sight Singing for Singers

Have you ever seen someone pick up a chart and deliver an almost flawless performance on their first reading? Sometimes it's talent, but you did know that it's also a learned skill, right? And here's your chance to learn it. We've got books for teachers of primary and secondary-school singers, as well as those written for the adult singer. You wouldn't think sight-singing could be made easy, but that's because you haven't read these books (or listened to the accompanying CDs & tapes) yet.

Stanley Arkis / Herman Schuckman : The Choral Sight Singer

Review: It is the purpose of this book to further the development of sight singing skills and to increase the knowlede of music theory as begun in 'An Introduction to Sight Singing.' While this book uses the principles of the 'movable do' system, the teacher may wish to use another system such as the 'fixed do,' numbers, or a neutral syllable. The Choral Sight Singer is systematically structured!
