SUMMARY:

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.

SUMMARY:

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.

300 Progressive Sight Reading Exercises For Piano

300 Progressive Sight Reading Exercises For Piano

Download

SUMMARY:

First and foremost: THIS IS NOT A METHOD BOOK. It is precisely what it says it is: 300 Progressive Sight Reading Exercises! Volume One is comprised of 300 progressive eight-bar exercises that train reading skills for both hands equally: Half of the pieces emphasize the right hand, the other half emphasize the left. The first 32 exercises isolate the hands while the remaining exercises combine them. For most of the exercises, the de-emphasized hand stays within a single five-finger position. Time signatures include 4/4 (Common Time), 3/4, 2/4, 6/8, and 2/2 (Cut Time). This entire first volume is in C Major or its relative modes. Key signatures, accidentals, dynamics, tempo, and expressive markings will be covered in future volumes. All of the exercises are eight measures long. If one has done any study of formal analysis, they will find that eight measures is a typical 'period' of music and usually contains two, four-bar phrases (also typical in length). For example, many sonatinas, jazz standards, and pop songs use "32 Bar Form" (A A B A), "Binary Form" (A B), and "Ternary Form" (A B A), with each section often being eight bars. Thus, eight measures (one period of music) makes the perfect length for sight-reading studies in my opinion. How to use this book: Start where the exercises begin and work across the book - from exercise 1, 5, 9, 13 and so on until you get to a point where the music challenges you and then mark your ending point. The next practice, play exercises 2, 6, 10, 14, and so on... The next: 3, 7, 11, 15 and so on, and finally 4, 8, 12, 16, and so on. If you want to work at your "break point" (the point in the book where you can no longer play musically), work DOWN the page instead of across the pages. Note: This book is also available in a LARGE PRINT version that for printing purposes had to be divided into two books. If you have poor vision or want this book to be easy to SEE on an electronic device, you might prefer the Large Print Version. "These books differ from conventional 'methods' in that technical and theoretical instructions have been omitted, in the belief that these are more appropriately left for the teacher to explain to the student." - Bela Bartok, Mikrokosmos. I whole-heartedly agree with Bartok's sentiment and if music teachers would ask their students what they like least (or hate the most) about typical lessons, it is the method books that win this contest EVERY TIME. I have completely eliminated method books from my own teaching practice and have much happier and more productive students than ever. While this book is intended to train sight-reading skills, it may also be used by beginners or those new to reading to acquire basic reading skills, but it assumes one either has a teacher or can at least find C on their instrument. It starts at a very basic level (only three notes) and adds a new note, rhythm, or concept every four exercises and thoroughly reinforces them throughout the rest of the book. Next, the music's composition is a slave to its function: The purpose of the books is to train reading skill, and the exercises keep challenging the range that has been established by previous exercises as well as less-than-convenient intervalic skips. They are composed from a 'music-first' perspective, as opposed to an 'instrument-first' perspective, and are purposely composed to be difficult to memorize. For example, the first exercises begin on C because they are in the key of C, and then go on to sometimes start and end on different scale degrees of the same key. Those familiar with the Fundamental Modes will likely recognize what they are hearing, but those unfamiliar with these modes will likely be hearing something that sounds a bit different, or odd, until their ears acclimate to these sounds. I see many students go through this process with altered dominants and augmented triads as well.

SUMMARY:

In Line by Line: Progressive Staff Method Arrangements for Elementary Music Literacy, author Stephanie L. Standerfer harnesses years of pedagogical expertise in a practical guide that promotes music learning by experience rather than imitation and memorization. Using well-known songs and instrumental accompaniments, this book contains a new practical method for teaching music literacy. The book's lesson plans first introduce concepts to the ear and body that allow students to internalize the sound and feeling before learning the symbol. Through this method, students learn and understand songs without the teacher modeling them and develop musicianship skills in the process. The arrangements include instrument parts for the typical complement of melodic instruments including glockenspiels, xylophones, and metallophones. Each arrangement includes at least one instrument part for more advanced learners, and one or more parts for students at lower skill levels. Music educators then complete individual lesson plans by teaching instrumental parts, again from notation instead of imitation. In this method, each song is taught over five to seven class periods as short segments of a regular class meeting, leaving time for other musical experiences such as listening lessons or folk dances. Taking every student into consideration, Line by Line also suggests ways to address specific student needs for those who need more time to process or who have specific diagnosed issues.
