My son is taking Grade 1 singing soon. I know ABRSM has the Aural Trainer app to help with the theory side of the test but what he really needs help with is sight reading a tune from the sheet music that he has not heard before. Their app does not seem to do this and I cannot find anything that does. Has anyone found an app that does show music and then tell you how close you were at singing it or can someone please suggest something else I can get/do to help him? Thanks very much.

I only managed to find this (it has a cd, so at least gives you some idea!)

Dd's teacher also sent me these links but I didn't have chance to explore them yet and I think they require some payment
