An excellent introduction to the basics of reading and sight-singing music, designed for adult learners with minimal or no music-reading ability who want to acquire or improve their skills for parish music ministry. Kerr Breedlove's common-sense approach, honed by use in the classroom, is presented in eight units. Lessons are of manageable size, with plenty of exercises and examples to assist new music readers in using their skills. The time choir directors spend teaching songs by rote can become a thing of the past and choirs can learn more music in a shorter amount of time when they can sight-sing with the help of this user-friendly workbook. And, quantity pricing makes it possible for each singer to have their own copy for note-taking and review. There's even a printed "keyboard" in the appendix that can be used by new sight-singers to review concepts independently, outside of rehearsal, with greater confidence.
"[Kerr Breedlove]...provides tools in a very clear, progressive way which allows each person to master a section at one's own pace. The presentations on rhythm and meter are very clear and should be especially helpful...I would recommend this book to -- or even buy it for -- any choir member who could not read music well (or at all), and I would spend time working with choir members in a group using this method." ---Dr. Marie Kramer, Pastoral Music Notebook, June-July 2006

"We did a choir program this summer using [Sight-Sing a New Song]... and it was very successful - increased our choir membership by 10 members and the singing is much better!" --- Cornell Bialicki, Director of Music, St. Vincent Ferrer Parish, Naugatuck, CT
