For choral directors, voice teachers, and singers, this practical handbook with accompanying audiocassette provides a step-by-step method to aid in building the voice. It shows how to train singers to use their voices with versatility, freedom, ease, endurance, and without damage or discomfort in the throat.
The method is based on scientific principles and natural coordination of the human anatomy and on all parts of the voice and are used daily to warm up the many muscles involved in singing.
In addition, over 40 advanced exercises are included to help meet the demands of different types of music literature and to develop stamina. If these are practiced correctly and with knowledge of the principles involved, the singer will advance at a fairly progressive rate.
All of these exercises - basic, advanced, and a group designed to correct specific vocal problems - are musically notated in the book. Correct execution of each is demonstrated on the accompanying audiocassette.
