Sight singing, yaaaayyy! Okay, perhaps that isn’t your current go-to response when faced with the task of singing from a piece of sheet music you’ve never heard before. Sight singing can be intimidating as you have to process, calculate and anticipate … whilst physically producing beautiful, emotional music. But with dedication and practice, you, too, can achieve sight singing mastery!
