Choir Secular
Foundations in Choral Sight-Singing. Composed by Andy Beck and Brian Lewis. This edition: Textbook. Classroom/Pre-School; Method/Instruction; Reproducible; Sight-Singing Method; SmartMusic. Choral/Vocal. Book. 96 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.22017).

Item Number: AP.22017

ISBN 073903152X.

A sequential sight-singing curriculum for all choirs. Each of the six units (containing four lessons each) clearly introduces new music reading concepts, reinforces those concepts with several rhythm and pitch exercises, motivates students with helpful hints and challenge exercises, and concludes with fun-filled review games and "Evaluating Your Performance" questions. The helpful "Getting Ready" pages (which precede each unit) are filled with music fundamentals, and for choirs who have never read music before, an optional "Before We Begin" chapter opens the book. And it's all neatly laid out in a 96-page octavo sized publication; a perfect fit for your students, and their folders. From whole notes to sixteenth-note patterns, seconds to sevenths, key signatures, dynamics, articulations, and tempo markings; it's all here, and it's all logically ordered to insure student success! Spend just a few minutes a day with this book and your choir, too, will learn to "Sing at First Sight!" This title is available in SmartMusic.

    I LOVE these books. They are not really for beginners, however. It's book one of a higher level, in my opinion. I use it with all my students who have completed a beginning sight reading level elsewhere. This is the level that gets them ready for All State auditions...

    . It is a sight reading book, and is not meant to "give" the person the sounds they are to find on their own. I've never used the CD since I am a music teacher and am there to guide them. They can do it on their own if they have previous background.

    what you hear as your sample is not what you receive. There is absolutely NO singing on the CD whatsoever.
