An Introduction to Sight-Singing Book 1

Books | Voice

Publisher: Stainer & Bell
Author: A. Forbes Milne
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

For over fifty years, A. Forbes Milne's text has been the classic route to mastery of the art of sight-singing, an essential skill for vocalists and a most valuable study for all musicians besides. Preparing each section of carefully graded exercises in various keys with a detailed yet concise theoretical account, the author offers a thorough preliminary training in time, rhythm and pitch before proceeding to major and minor scales, groupings of rests, crotchets, quavers, semiquavers and triplets, and chromatic notes within non-modulating melodies. The method includes the so-called French time-names and Solfa note-names for those wishing to use them.

      I find this book very useful for my beginner students, particularly those who find pitching difficult. It begins with exercises simply on do and soh, then adds me and later the other notes in the major scale. After this rhythm.
