Sing at First Sight, Level 1 - Popplers Music
Sing at First Sight, Level 1

Sing at First Sight, Level 1

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!
