A beginner's text for the sight singing portion of classes in basic musicianship and sight singing/aural skills. The exercises are all carefully graded in terms of pitch and rhythmic difficulty and are constructed so that they slowly build upon skills previously mastered. The melodies are all within the range of an octave, as the targetted students have little experience in singing. Each chapter includes duet pieces. Rather than focusing attention on one student singing at a time while the rest of the class listens passively, ensembles provide for a more active role for the rest of the class. Other features that ensure the book's suitability for beginners include: consistent chapter organization - rhythmic exercises first, followed by pitch exercises, staff familiarization exercises, and then melodies; the use of both solfege syllable letters and scale degree numbers to represent pitches; rhythms limited to subdivisions; clefs limited to treble and bass and a reference table of key signatures.
