A book of 338 short music drills and practices that aim for basic mastery of musical notation and vocal control. Drills range from simple scale practice to more complex chord exercises. Rhythm and accidental practices are included as well. This is an old-fashioned music reader. Many drills do not include words; some of the songs are more sober than we are accustomed to using in a school setting, but still useful. This book is relevant to school music teachers or anyone wanting to practice sight reading of shape-note music. 256 pages; hardcover; published by Eastern Mennonite Publications.
