"A fabulous resource! David Xiques's pedagogical processes towards music literacy for young singers through outstanding choral literature are clear. His sequencing is invaluable for the conductor who wishes to approach masterful musicianship with beginning choirs." -- Georgia A. Newlin, DMA, Adelphi University, Past President, Organization of American Kodály Educators
"A thoughtful presentation of concepts that will be of use to teachers at many levels, Solfege and Sonority
is the most coherent and broadly applicable pedagogy I have seen on this very important subject." --Joshua Habermann, Conductor, Dallas Symphony Chorus
