Milne, A. Forbes: An Introduction to Sight Singing. Part 1
For over fifty years, A. Forbes Milne’s text has been the classic route to mastery of the art of sight-singing, an essential skill for vocalists and a most valuable study for all musicians besides. Preparing each section of carefully graded exercises in various keys with a detailed yet concise theoretical account, the author offers a thorough preliminary training in time, rhythm and pitch before proceeding to major and minor scales, groupings of rests, crotchets, quavers, semiquavers and triplets, and chromatic notes within non-modulating melodies. The method includes the so-called French time-names and Solfa note-names for those wishing to use them.
