I know there have been loads of threads on sight singing/reading, but when I try to do a search on specific topics it just shuts my computer down. Hence a new thread.
Teacher has persuaded me to take my grade 7 this November, so there's nothing for it, I've just got to learn to sight sing. It was depressing that my overall results in my grade 6 sank to a lowly 116, when I scored so well on all my songs and aurals. Because I failed my sightsinging.
So, can anyone recommend a good sight singing book please. If I had loads more time and resources I'd be beating a path to Cyrilla's door to learn Kodaly properly, but with things the way they are that's not feasible.
The Paul Harris books I've worked through, and in a way they're too easy and straightforward.
Then I have another one somewhere, which has a special "method", but it was american and seemed to over complicate things.
I've got the AB's book with graded exercises in, but I'm really looking for a book that will teach me to a higher level than the Paul Harris, but without using some weird and wonderful "method".
Can anyone recommend anything please.
I haven't got bags of time free to devote to it, but if I commit just ten minutes a day, I'm hoping that will make a difference. But I'd like to use my ten minutes as wisely as possible is, I guess, what I am saying.
