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.

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.
