The student voice; an introduction to developing the singing voice.


The student voice; an introduction to developing the singing voice.

Baldy, Colin.

Dunedin Academic Press


140 pages




Noticing the dearth of focused texts designed to reinforce lessons between student and teacher, world-renowned singing teacher Colin Baldy developed this text for students, teachers and professional singers. The work teaches, in an easy-to-read form, the physiology behind the singing voice and its capabilities. Also included are chapters on the physical changes that occur from childhood through to maturity, advice on thoughtful repertoire-building, voice exercises to promote muscle memory, and many other useful components that make up a complete education in the singing voice. The text contains a reference section, further reading suggestions, and a foreword by Sir Thomas Allen. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
