An GREAT book for getting your sight reading together

This book, though written as being for singers, has some great exercises and could really enhance your learning process in this area.

Absolutely, it will!

I've had this in my library for a few years and have found it to be an excellent teaching tool.

If you go to the amazon page, you can click on samples of the book. Note that it takes you through exercises that get you focused on intervallic and scale degree relationships.

Lots of good stuff in this!!

Worth every penny.

(You may even find the hard copy in your local bookstore or music store. There's also a Kindle edition for your Kindle or iPad Kindle app).

An is an indefinite article which is placed before a word that begins with a phonetic vowel. A is an indefinite article which is placed before a word that begins with a phonetic consonant.

This book looks pretty cool i've been getting into singing lately, and sight singing helps the ear, and mine needs work
