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 principles of voice production, breathing, vocal health, music reading, learning a song, performance techniques, musicianship, and song interpretation. Part Two is a collection of 52 songs- movies and musical theater, folk, art songs, songs of faith, duets, and rounds (for group performance). A companion 2-CD Set includes all the melodies and accompaniments for the song anthology, plus pronunciation for foreign language songs.
