A Beginning Singer's Guide
A Beginning Singer's Guide is a vocal pedagogy with four practical uses: a collateral text for studio voice lessons, a primary text for undergraduate vocal pedagogy classes, a practical guide for new voice teachers, and an exploration of subjects not usually covered in music pedagogy books, such as notes on working with a pianist, improving memory, common acting terms, subtexting, and methods for alleviating performance anxiety.
