✏Sight Singing Complete Book Summary : Students of music are faced with the challenge of developing their aural skills to the point at which they can see music on the page with thoughtful, trained eyes and hear it with their mind’s ear. Sight Singing Complete, leads students to this point by beginning with the familiar and moving gently toward the unfamiliar until they are transforming symbol into sound and improvising in all idioms. The 8th edition of Sight Singing Complete preserves the multi-faced pedagogical approach and the commitment to historical repertoire from the seventh edition. New to this edition is an integrated approach to rhythm and performance — This edition is unusual in that we not only expect student to master each skill by itself, we also expect them to integrate all three skills in carefully designed sequence of “Play + Sing” exercises adapted from 18th – 21st century instrumental and vocal repertoire.

✏Sightsinging complete Book Summary : Designed for the sight singing component of the Freshman and Sophomore music major curriculum, Sight Singing Complete presents the essential components of this sometimes difficult skill in a practical and effective manner. "Hearing music with one's eyes" has served as the theme of Sight Singing Complete since the first edition. In order to reach this goal, the sequence of instructional material is designed to help students develop the aural skills that will enable them to reverse the compositional process of sound into symbol to one of symbol into sound. The comprehensive and systematic approach employs literature, drawing most of the examples from actual pieces instead of devising contrived melodies. The abundant new exercises in this edition refresh the text, even as the proven exercises continue to educate students.

✏Music and Dyslexia Book Summary : Music and dyslexia is of particular interest for two reasons. Firstly, research suggests that music education can benefit young dyslexics as it helps them focus on auditory and motor timing skills and highlights the rhythms of language. Secondly, dyslexic musicians at a more advanced level face particular challenges such as sight-reading, written requirements of music examinations and extreme performance nerves. This is a sequel to the highly successful Music and Dyslexia: Opening New Doors, published in 2001. The field of dyslexia has developed rapidly, particularly in the area of neuropsychology. Therefore this book focuses on these research advances, and draws out the aspects of music education that benefit young dyslexics. The contributors also discuss the problems that dyslexic musicians face, and several chapters are devoted to sight-reading and specific strategies that dyslexics can use to help them sight-read. The book offers practical techniques and strategies, to teachers and parents to help them work with young dyslexics and dyslexic musicians.
