#beginquote# They''ve got a section of this website that teaches you how to read music, try checking that out. There are also numerous other web sources if you try searching for them. While you're learning, it would probably be handy to have some sort of keyboard with you, so you can test out the notes you are singing to make sure you are singing the right note. It takes a lot of ear training to be able to look at notes and sight sing from it.. knowing the intervals between notes and all. I'm currently taking an AP music theory class in school, and I'm going to be learning how to sight sing, even though I'm not a singer. I've been playing the cello for 6 years and the piano for about 3. Looking at notes and singing, to me, is much more difficult than looking at notes and playing on an instrument. Reason being on an instrument, you know how many fingers you put down on what string or what keys on a piano, etc., but with your voice you are just blindly guessing. Of course, if you're properly trained it probably wouldn't be blind guesses anymore ;) #endquote#
