An incredibly popular sight-singing method, this is based on the solfege system (with optional numbers) and gives you a step-by step plan for teaching your choir the fundamentals of sight singing. By spending just ten minutes a day on sight singing, you will dramatically improve your choir's music skills in just a matter of weeks! The materials in Volume 1 include 334 diatonic exercises and a glossary of music terms, with an excellent instructional text in the Teacher's Edition. Volume 2 is a logical continuation of this method, or is for groups that are already proficient in solfege. It includes 244 exercises with an easy-to-understand approach to chromatics; it also covers such topics as more advanced divisions and subdivisions of the beat, minor tonalities and more. An added feature of this method is an excellent supplement, the Jenson Sight-Singing Part Exercises, which is a collection of 82 exercises for use with this or any other sight-singing program. Including rounds, two-, three- and four-part exercises, graded original material, and excerpts from the choral repertoire, this is an excellent bridge between singing just "exercises" and true choral literature! This is exceptionally popular with your colleagues, so you owe it to yourself to examine this very carefully!
