I'd like to start reading solfege for voice, to help my voice, but mostly to improve my ear (ive heard from many that its a great exercise)

Where can I get sheet music to do this with?? Maybe you guys could post some? Thanks in advance.

I really wouldn't look anywhere else. It's got more than enough material to keep you busy for a year, and it's all organized so you start very simple and graudually introduce new sounds to your ears.

Since it's so widely used, you can easily get a used copy somewhere for dirt cheap, like on Amazon.com's used section.

I dont know how it compares to the other book, but atleast it's free!
