Publisher Comments:

Informed by Gary Karpinski's groundbreaking research on music perception and cognition and his two decades of practical teaching experience, this innovative package systematically develops ear-training and sight-singing skills based on how students actually learn. The Manual lucidly explains how to hear and understand the essential elements of tonal music by closely integrating aural skills with the basic concepts of music theory. The companion Anthology provides a collection of 1200 graded musical excerpts drawn from real music literature. Carefully coordinated with the Manual, this comprehensive anthology is flexible enough to support any aural skills curriculum or to be used alone as a sight-singing text.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook for ear training and sight singing is organized by very specific musical elements in brief chapters, and focuses on mostly Western tonal music. It begins with simplified notation and the fundamentals of meter and rhythm, and then moves up to advanced concepts such as modulation, in a format appropriate for a two-year sequence in aural skills. Functional approaches rather than interval work is emphasized, and dictation, transcription, and other exercises are included. No previous musical training is necessary. A CD-ROM of 600 examples and exercises is included. The plastic comb binding allows the book to lie flat when opened.
