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. These assignments move logically through the material and different levels of difficulty as students become more accomplished over the course of study.
  • Relevant musical theory included. 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.
