This paper describes a computer program designed to aid its users in learning to sight-sing. Sight-singing-the ability to sing music from a score without prior study-is an important skill for musicians and holds a central place in most university music curricula. Its importance to vocalists is obvious; it is also an important skill for instrumentalists and conductors because it develops the aural imagination necessary to judge how the music should sound, when played (Benward and Carr 1991). Furthermore, it is an important skill for amateur musicians, who can save a great deal of rehearsal time through an ability to sing music at sight.
