I will be creating a collection of choral works composed specifically for sight-singing practices.
They will be written in SATB, SAB, SSA, and TBB voicings with variations in difficulty for choirs to enhance their sight-singing experience. Also included in the collection will be helpful tricks and tips for the director and students to improve their skills for correctly reading music the first time with more accuracy and (hopefully) less anxiety.
This collection will be available January 2024!
New voicings for many of my current choral works will be added over this next year.
Stay tuned for these announcements!
