Gary S. Karpinski (Author, University of Massachusetts, Amherst)

Short, modular chapters

The Manual for Ear Training and Sight-Singing consists of 79 short chapters, each of which focuses on one new complication, such as a new rhythm or chord. Exercises, including dictation and keyboard activities—many of them new—help students put what they've learned into practice. The Second Edition includes more error detection activities, multi-part dictations, keyboard exercises, and dictation activities featuring real music.  

Comprehensive companion anthology

Karpinski carefully reviewed and organized every melody in the Anthology to coordinate with the order in which musical materials are introduced in the Manual. The early chapters of the Anthology now offer additional simple melodies and new rhythm-only and play-and-sing exercises. The anthology's online index allows instructors to search for and assign melodies based on detailed parameters, such as key, intervals, meter, and more.
