✏The Disciplines of Vocal Pedagogy Towards an Holistic Approach Book Summary : If classical singers and vocal pedagogues are to be prepared adequately for performance, teaching and co-operation in inter-professional relations, then an holistic education entailing multi-disciplinary study is essential. In this important new book, Karen Sell examines the disciplines pertinent to vocal pedagogy, tracing the lineage of views from the ancient world to the present day. In the process important diverse roots are exposed, yielding differing and even conflicting tonal ideals which have a bearing on the consideration of different singing methods and the interpretation of songs and arias. Ethics and psychology are identified as central to the entire pedagogical process along with the scientific basis of singing: encompassing acoustics, anatomy and physiology, with special reference to the bearing of the latter two upon vocal health and hygiene. A detailed consideration of singing technique is the centrepiece of the book, and an understanding of good technique and scientific awareness is shown to be fundamental to good vocal pedagogical practice. This leads to a discussion on performance and aesthetics, contributing to the education of the fully equipped singer. No study to date has demonstrated the inter-relationships between all these individual disciplines and the ways in which they influence singing pedagogy. Sells holistic, multi-disciplinary approach will be of particular benefit to singers and voice teachers, and will also appeal to music educationalists and professionals in cognate disciplines.

✏The Craft of Singing Book Summary : This is a new text with two principal aims: to provide a foundation of anatomical, physiological, acoustical and medical knowledge for students in the belief that one must know how something works before one can alter or repair it, and to carefully structure the learning of the foundational vocal skills necessary for real future development of each students technique past the end of the course. Borrowing from Voice Science but staying firmly centered in the studio or classroom, the text helps the reader with a raw vocal ability understand the function and care of their vocal instrument. In the second part, the book begins a carefully graduated approach to cement into place good singing habits. Three songs, comprising works in Italian, English and German, are used to produce exemplary vowels and consonants and wonderful songs. - Publisher.

✏Solutions for Singers Book Summary : While many texts and courses on the art of singing offer comprehensive overviews of technique and performance, few have time to delve into the specific questions they spawn. Solutions for Singers explores these unanswered questions, filling in gaps that professional performers, students of singing, and voice teachers have long sought to close. Fielding over 200 questions, distinguished teacher and performer Richard Miller tackles problems raised during hundreds of his master classes and pedagogy courses. He deliberately avoids abstract generalities, concentrating instead on specific, recurring questions: What are some good exercises to loosen or relax tension in the back of the tongue? Do you apply the same principles regarding breathing to a younger student that you do to older students? What is meant by voiced and unvoiced consonants? Is there a female falsetto? Through such specialized questions, Miller probes the very essence of artistic expression. The questions are organized under ten broad topics, which Miller considers from various angles. He couples traditional and modern philosophies to present the most relevant and precise solutions. The result is an invaluable handbook for singers, which, read either sequentially or selectively, provides a unique and pragmatic approach to vocal artistry and technique.

✏The Singer s Life Book Summary : The Singer's Life: Goals and Roles is based on a series of essays written for the National Opera Association's Opera Journal, as a five-year ongoing column titled "High Notes". In 1998 president Arvid Knudsen approached me about writing a brief quarterly column for NOA's Opera Journal on a topic of interest to singers. At that time, having been a singer for fifty years and a voice teacher for forty years, I thought I might have some worthwhile information to share with vocal musicians, so I enthusiastically accepted the assignment. After giving serious consideration to potential topics, I settled on the idea of exploring the wide variety of roles played by singers (metaphorically speaking, the various hats worn by singers), both as vocal musicians and as human beings. So this series of essays focuses on the many complex challenges inherent in the voice profession, primarily from the point of view of classically trained singers, but also relevant to singers of non-classical music. To add a personal touch, throughout the book I've included some relevant anecdotes and experiences that relate to each role, as played out over my long career, beginning as a starry-eyed young singer and culminating as a teacher, mentor, and writer.
