Eyes and Ears: An Anthology of Melodies for Sight-Singing
by Benjamin Crowell
Publisher: LightAndMatter.com 2005
Number of pages: 145
Eyes and Ears is a book of melodies for use in practicing sight-singing. It currently contains about 400 melodies, arranged systematically for education. So far, I've concentrated on assembling a body of relatively easy material that would be sufficient for the first semester or two of a college-level musicianship course. There is a small amount of didactic text, but if you're going to use the book for self-instruction, you'll need some background in basic music theory, and preferably access to someone knowledgeable to provide guidance.

In this essay Henkjan Honing makes a case for 'illiterate listening', the human ability to discern, interpret and appreciate musical nuances already from day one, long before a single word has been uttered, let alone conceived.

How does music actually work? We derive from first principles of Physics and Computation the following fundamental phenomena of music: the Major Scale, the Standard Chord Dictionary, and the difference in feeling between the Major and Minor Triads.
by A. A. Pattou - G.P. Putnam
The author writes for all those wishing to be guided by clear common sense rules and precepts, in the discovery of an easy and natural method of singing. He examines the voice in its cause, which is breath, and in its effect, which is tone.
by Millie Ryan - Franklin Publishing
The author wishes to give all the valuable 'hints' and 'helps' that it has taken years of experience to gather, covering all the questions that are absolutely necessary to know, making it brief, simple and understandable.
