1) The Overview of Sight-Singing Developmental Rubric Explanation that explains how to score each skill, but more importantly, it will help to guide instruction for developing each skill (matching pitch, singing a scale in tune, alternating solfege patterns, mastering aural training, note-labeling, rhythm performing).

2)  Pitch-Matching Rubic – will train your weakest singers to match pitch. As a result of this rubric, you will see that none of your singers are actually tone-deaf.

3)  Scale-Singing Rubric – will train your singers in tangible steps to sing a scale perfectly in tune. An in-tune scale is necessary prior to breaking apart the scale into skips and leaps.

4) Simple Alternating Solfege Pattern Rubric– will teach the basic concept of internalizing skips versus step-wise motion. As a result, they will learn the basics of audiating scale-tones.

5)  Aural Training Sheet & Assessment Rubric – will assess your singer’s ability to break apart the scale and sing all diatonic leaps. They will not be success with this until they have mastered the previous 3 rubrics.
