Hindemith's remarkable textbooks remain the most outstanding works of their kind. In contrast to many textbooks written by academics, these were produced by a man who could play every instrument of the orchestra, could compose for almost every kind of ensemble, and who was one of the most stimulating teachers of his day. This collection of exercises is intended to develop basic musicianship skills: note-reading, rhythmic and melodic sight-singing and dictation. The exercises begin deceptively simple and increase in difficulty. A rhythmic exercise might have two rhythmic lines to be produced by each hand tapping, or by singing one of the lines and clapping or tapping the other. Melodic exercises are often accompanied by a contrasting rhythm line. Exercises are presented in alto, tenor, bass and treble clefs. Many of the exercises must be practiced slowly at first, then faster as skill improves. Those who complete even half the book will have improved their musicianship significantly.
