A classic sight-singing anthology featuring an ideal blend of newly composed melodies and music from the literature.

A New Approach to Sight Singing combines author-composed exercises with carefully selected excerpts from the literature, all arranged for an ideal pedagogical progression.

Effective examples for developing sight-singing skills

A New Approach to Sight Singing features thousands of melodies, rhythms, ensembles, and sing-and-play exercises. For the Sixth Edition, melodies from the literature and newly composed melodies are presented in one chapter. Twentieth-century materials and rhythms have been revised to improve pacing; Roman numerals have been added to help students see the harmonic implications of melodic exercises; and ensembles have been expanded beyond the duets to include examples in a variety of configurations.

Clear organization

The text is organized in four chapters by activity type—melodies, rhythms, ensembles, and sing-and-play—and within each chapter, activities are organized by difficulty, giving instructors the flexibility to focus on the activities of their choice.
