I am sure you, like me, have that one student who doesn’t think they can sight sing. They dig their heels in and just plainly refuse to give it a go. I have spent the last two years developing a weekly strategy that will help those students. My senior students come into class not having had a history of singing. They might do a little in their elective classes but generally there will be one or two who are “instrumentalists that don’t sing!”. You know the type.
Well, I have a system that is painless, easy and makes perfect sense when taken from the perspective of the instrumental student. This weeks podcast introduces you to the first stage and explains how I go about teaching sight singing to stubborn seniors. In the coming weeks, I will be releasing other elements of this strategy to help you and your students see success in this area.
