Additional Book Details
Drawing from his many years of private lessons and choral work, Garyth Nair, an experienced faculty member and Music Director and Conductor Emeritus of the Summit Chorale, has two goals in this book:
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.
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. The student receives the authorS special advice and suggestions.
