The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of aural modeling in guided practice through the Internet on the sight-singing improvement of elementary education majors. Students enrolled in a music methods course for elementary education majors (N=37) used software delivered via the Internet to practice sight-singing. The experimental web page included visual examples of sight-singing exercises as well as aural modeling of each of the exercises. The control web page included only visual examples. A t test for independent samples indicated no significant difference in the posttest scores of the two groups in rhythm (p > .05), pitch on solfege (p > .05), or pitch on text (p > .05) at the conclusion of the 15 weeks of study. However, both groups did improve significantly from pretest to posttest, indicating that the skill of sight-singing can be taught to elementary education majors using multimedia technology.
