Designed for course sequences in aural skills, Progressive Sight Singing, Third Edition, by Carol Krueger, presents students with the grammar and syntax of musical structure and prepares them to perceive that structure with both the ear and the eye. Divided into two parts, the text presents rhythmic exercises in Part I and melodic exercises in Part II. The two sections can be used concurrently over a four-semester course sequence, giving instructors flexibility to teach at a pace that suits the abilities and backgrounds of a particular class or course schedule. Features: a progressive approach introduces new elements one chapters at a time while reinforcing previously learned skills through graduated exercises, encouraging active practice ; An abundance of rhythm exercises eliminates the need for a separate rhythm text ; A variety of sight singing methodologies are accommodated throughout the text. New to this edition: Expanded and adjusted pacing of the rhythm sequence and an earlier introduction of simple meter aids in the development of the connection between sound and sight ; Addtional solo, duet, and multi-voice melodic exercises enhance aural and reading skills ; Expanded appendices include suggested harmony-chord progressions ; A free and open-access Companion website (www.oup.com/us/krueger) offers recordings for aural dictation, solutions to exercises, flashcards, expanded vocal pitch exercises/graphs, and many additional melodic and rhythm exercises. -- from back cover.

Tracy Lee Heavner is Associate Professor of Music Education, Music Theory and Applied Woodwinds at the University of South Alabama in Mobile.
In Line by Line, author Stephanie L. Standerfer harnesses years of pedagogical expertise in a practical guide to promote music learning by experience rather than imitation and memorization. Using well-known songs and a variety of instrumental accompaniments for all skill levels, lesson plans encourage students to first learn music conceptually by internalizing the sound and feeling before learning musical symbols. The lesson plans are tailored for five to seven spiraled class periods and take every student into consideration by suggesting ways to address specific student needs for those who need more time to process.
The aim of this first sight-singing volume is to instil confidence in singers and to present a method of approaching all aspects of singing at sight. Many of the melodies follow familiar shapes and rhythms, and use sequences to aid recognition of these patterns. Singers are encouraged to observe how to obtain their starting note from the introduction and to note the help with their vocal line that can be found in the accompaniment. A teacher and pupil-friendly approach valuable to both singers and instrumentalists - styles recognisable to both student and teacher - simple piano parts with chord indications - progressive examples beginning with just 3 or 4 notes and simple time values
