Publisher Comments:

Suitable for all voices, this comprehensive introductory text uses a variety of pedagogical approaches to introduce students to the art and pleasure of singing. The text is flexibly organized, presenting the basic principles of voice production, musicianship, song interpretation, and vocal health in a format that can be adjusted to meet the needs of the classroom and the individual. The text consists of two parts. Part One discusses such topics as breathing, basic vocal health, learning to read music, how to learn a song, and performance techniques. Part Two is an anthology of 50 songs - folk, musical theater, art songs, and rounds (for group performance).

Synopsis:

This comprehensive introductory text has helped hundreds of thousands of new singers and experienced singers find their voice or sing even better. The text consists of two parts. Part One discusses practicing, vocalizing, breathing, learning and dramatizing songs, maintaining your vocal health, and reading music. Part Two is an anthology of 52 songs, from folk songs, movies and musical theater, art songs and arias, songs of faith, duets, and rounds (for group performance). A companion 2-CD Set (ISBN 0495115320) includes all the melodies and accompaniments for the song anthology, plus pronunciation for foreign language songs.

Part Two provides you with an anthology of 60 songs--folk, musical theater, art songs, songs of faith, duets, and rounds (for group performance).
