Sight-Singing: Ten Years of Published Research
Kuehne, Jane M.
Update: Applications of Research in Music Education, v29 n1 p7-14 Nov 2010
The purpose of this article was to review published research on sight-singing from the past 10 years, 1998-2008. Several authors published research in various areas in sight-singing. These included festival availability and participation, time use in sight-singing adjudication, method and materials, strategies of successful students, assessing sight-singing skills, effects of background noise on sight-singing ability, and harmonic and melodic influences on sight-singing success. As a result, several teaching strategies were suggested and it was concluded that teachers should choose a method, use it consistently, and teach their students to prepare effectively. Suggestions for future research are included. (Contains 1 table.)
