Bodil Krogh – Prima Vista, sight-reading and singing

PRIMA VISTA is a text book for the purpose of self-tuition, but will also be of use to both teachers of ear-training and singing teachers.

Published by The Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus 2013

Includes a CD with song accompaniments

Number of pages: 172

The target group is singing students at conservatoires, but other music students will profit from the book’s sections with exercises in particular.

The book contains the following three elements:
– exercises
– musical examples from the song literature
– a CD with the piano part for these songs

The last-mentioned is this book’s most important innovatory feature compared with other text books on the subject of sight-reading.

With this CD the user is able to practise the process of sight-singing without having to be dependent on an accompanist.

Recordings of the examples can be found on the enclosed CD.
