For courses in Music Theory (a two-year sequence including sight singing and ear training) as well as separate Sight Singing courses. Using an abundance of meticulously organized melodies drawn from the literature of composed music and a wide range of the world's folk music, Ottman provides the most engaging and comprehensive Sight Singing text on the market. Over fifty years ago, Robert W. Ottman set out to write a book that draws examples from the literature as opposed to being composed by the author. He proposed that students should work with "real" music as they study musical forms. The result was Music for Sight Singing. Not only is real music more enjoyable and interesting to sing than dry examples, but genuine repertoire naturally introduces a host of important musical considerations beyond pitch and rhythm (including dynamics, accents, articulations, slurs, repeat signs, and tempo markings). Several generations of teachers have also agreed that Ottman's ability to order his examples from the simple to the complex is another key to the book's long term success. Nancy Rogers, the book's new author, has added new vitality to the book, introducing exercises to develop creativity as well as to build basic skills.

Designed for the complete undergraduate course sequence in aural skills, Progressive Sight Singing, Second Edition, introduces students to the underlying grammar and syntax of musical structure and prepares them to perceive that structure with both the ear and the eye. Working from the premise that students learn musical skills in much the same order as they do language skills, this book trains the ear first---through hearing and imitating patterns---teaching students to hear and perform before they read and write. Part I presents rhythmic exercises only, and Part II presents melodic exercises; the two sections are designed to be used concurrently at an adaptable pace. The popular in-text CD from the first edition has been expanded into an in-text DVD that includes more of the rhythm and tonal patterns introduced in the book, as well as over 100 graphs depicting the vocal pitch exercises. For the Second Edition, Part II (Melodic Reading) has been expanded and rebalanced to reinforce more advanced concepts, making this text ideal for the entire four-semester course sequence in aural skills. This edition integrates a rich variety of well-paced, graduated exercises, including new exercises for C clefs, secondary triads, improvisation, and duets, and has been thoroughly redesigned for improved readability. A new Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/krueger expands on the pedagogy underlying the book, offers solutions to the exercises, and provides additional exercises and teaching tips.

This book is a hands-on investigation of the stages musicians go through as they learn to hear, read, and perform music. It draws on the latest research in music perception and cognition, music theory, and pedagogy, along with centuries of insight from music theorists, composers, and performers. The first part explores the development of music listening skills, including such broader activities as dictation and transcription, and specific abilities such as meter perception, short-term musical memory, and tonic inference. The second part then examines the skills involved in reading and performing music. It looks at such physical skills as vocal production and eye movements and at such complex integrated tasks as sight-singing transpositions and modulations. Throughout the book the author presents these skills in their musical contexts and emphasizes their roles in the general development of musicality. Aural Skills Acquisition builds important bridges between music theory, cognitive psychology, and pedagogy. It subjects ideas from music theory to the rigors of psychological testing and combines findings from the psychology of learning with ideas and methods of contemporary music theory. It will prove an invaluable guide for music teachers, music theorists, and psychologists interested in music perception and cognition.
