I'm looking for a text (or computer software) that will help me with sight singing and aural skills.
I've had four semesters of theory and aural theory, but my skills are still severely lacking. I've been accepted to Florida State for my master's and want to prepare myself over the summer so I don't embarrass myself when I get there.
I'm going to be using the "Musician's Guide"
texts to review theory, as they were co-authored by one of the theory teachers at Florida State, Dr. Jane Piper Clendinning. She also has a "Musician's Guide to Aural Skills"
set, but I couldn't find any reviews online for it. I'm wary about investing in the books without knowing if they're good or not.
I was also looking at The Manual for Ear Training and Sight Singing
by Gary Karpinski.
Does anyone have any information on either of these texts for aural skills or have alternative recommendations? Be aware that this will be total self-study, and I won't have a teacher to "quiz" me on anything in the books.
