Ear Training and Sight Singing

A Developmental Aural Skills Text

Glen Ethier

  • Ear training and sight singing in a single volume - provides comprehensive material for both sight singing and ear training, weaving them together with an intensive focus on beat and rhythm, links to required musical theory, and extensive exercises
  • Accessible - written for not only the more accomplished musician, but also for students just beginning their careers and studies at the post-secondary level who have practical experience without a lot of other background training
  • Extensive exercises throughout - each section of the text has a graduated series of exercises to help students develop from the basics of transcription and singing of material to advanced tonal, chromatic, and rhythmic material
  • Hand-in assignments - the text includes a complete set of 20 tear-out hand-in assignments with recordings to accompany each of the four levels of development
  • Relevant musical theory accompanies the introduction of each new concept, linking ear training and sight singing to co-requisite music theory courses
  • Audio CD included - specially prepared by the author, the accompanying CD includes all selections of music for exercises included in the text
