Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: 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. Sell?s 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.

READING: Singing with Your Whole Self teaches performers to use the Feldenkrais Method to ameliorate problems of tension, muscle strain, and illness in order to obtain optimal vocal performance. It contains an important and unique feature: modularized Feldenkrais "Awareness through Movement" lessons. These are specifically designed for liberating function in all musicians and in singers in particular. Modularized lessons allow the user to choose between functionally useful short segments or entire lessons. The first part of the book presents the theory explaining why this approach works in an easily understood and concrete fashion. The remaining chapters explore our anatomy by area and explain usage, problems and how these relate to singing; lessons throughout revolve around improving performance. Includes an index both by lesson and by problem, referring performers to the lessons most effective for a specific problem.

READING: 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.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: 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.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: 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.

READING: Specially designed for people using Sing & See, "How to Sing and See: Singing Pedagogy in the Digital Era" is a comprehensive guide to using visual feedback software in ways that will foster both vocal and musical development. It includes explanation of the Sing & See on-screen visual displays, a discussion of vocal questions that need to be considered in the individual application of the software, and over 200 vocal training exercises. The exercises cover intervals, triads and a comprehensive range of scales and modes used in a range of vocal styles. A page is devoted to each exercise, with the same layout, giving musical notation of the exercise, a brief explanation of its purpose, a reproduction of the target display and instructions on how to achieve it. The manual begins with the most basic singing task and builds from there, so you can choose exercises to build a graded vocal and musical developmental program, or to answer specific needs of individual students, or to construct a personalized practice regimen. Although written with singing teachers in mind, the book is also proving to be very useful for singers (those who already have some basic singing skills) as a self-directed practice regime. The large variety of vocal techniques covered by the book give the advanced student of singing a valuable guide to systematically improving his or her vocal skill by making best use of the Sing & See software. This version of the book is a paperback bound replica of the original spiral-bound Teacher's Manual available from It is slightly smaller in size and is easier to hold - although without the lie-flat ability of the original spiral binding.

READING: There has been a tremendous growth of interest in the human voice and its disorders during the past decade. This has led to the development of a variety of 'voice labs' or 'voice clinics' that are able to offer unique interdisciplinary assessment and treatment facilities. To cover aJlthe bases, the voice care team requires input frorn laryngology, speech-language pathology, psychiatry, neurology, voice science, music pedagogy, biomedical engineering and other peripheral fields. Because of the multidisciplinary nature of voice dinics there have been a number of books written that address our subject from different professional perspectives. These tend to be multi-authored works that draw on expertise from around the world, such as alaryngologist frorn New York, a speech pathologist from Toronto, etc. All are coJleagues that share similar interests but never actually share the management problems of the same patients. This book has been planned and written by the members ofa single 'voice clinic'iIt is our hope that it willreflect a singleness of direction and purpose in the way it presents our approach to a complex topic. Because of our regular interactive meetings over problem patients inwhich we debate the meaning of our observations, the evolution of etiological dassification systems, and the rationale for particular therapy approaches, we feel that we have become a team that is greater than the sum of its parts, and that there is value in sharing our cumulative thoughts with others. This is not simply a laryngology text for laryngologists.

READING: "This thesis will provide additional information to the limited resources available regarding the vocal performance and pedagogy of gospel music. Included is a brief description of the elements of gospel music and singing, a section on the development and understanding of the technique for Gospel singing for both the singer and vocal pedagogue, a short history of gospel music exploring the early stages of the style through its present and ever-evolving form, an explanation of basic vocal technique, as well as its components and application to gospel singing, which are introduced for further study. Most importantly, there is great detail provided regarding the most distinctive characteristic of gospel singing which is the use of ornamentation incorporated into songs, how to use it, why use it, and the appropriate placement within songs. There are other important factors discussed including the importance of maintaining health and hygiene of the voice to aid in the longevity of singing. There are many pedagogical resources readily available and easily accessible for the development of vocal technique for the classical art form, however, there is much less that exists for the gospel genre. Utilizing the author’s experience and research, this thesis has compiled a number of much needed tools to build the knowledge of understanding the gospel style, incorporating ornamentation into the singer’s performance, and achieving successful results through consistent practice."--
