Complete Method for Singers? Close!
on March 27, 2000
As a voice teacher and vocal coach I'm continually looking for new materials to help in the practical teaching of note reading and sightsinging. Mike Campbell's SIGHTSINGING - The Complete Method for Singers, while not being the 'God-send' it implies, has over-all proved to be a very useful tool. My students do get a little confused at times trying to use the number system of sightsinging, while also trying to count the beats in each measure. Also, there are a few errors in key notations and tones of the scale but nothing that would keep me from continuing to use this book. The ear training sections are excellent and the inclusion of Voice Range, Scales and Interval Charts are very helpful. I'll continue to purchase these books for my students and I feel that anyone with even a small amount of musical knowledge could work through this material successfully.
