IDIOT'S GUIDES SINGING: 2nd Edition


IDIOT'S GUIDES SINGING: 2nd Edition

PHYLLIS FULFORD & M. MILLER    Book Number: 89933    Product format: Paperback

Any practicing or aspiring singer can learn basic vocal techniques from this superb guide even if you've never sung in public or don't know how to read music. If you have access to the Internet, audio tracks are available online, approximately one hour of listen-and-learn files to help you learn to sing easily. But even without the audio guide, this book is designed to be used alone. It is organised as follows: finding your voice, learning to sing properly with correct breathing and perfecting your vocal placement, sight singing and vocal theory through exercises, proper diction, phrasing and dynamics as well as how to establish a regular practice routine. Sing in style whether choral music, classical and musical theatre songs, pop, rock, country music, jazz, gospel or R&B. You will really like these chapters as each one includes a full length song for you to practice. Finally you learn how to take care of your voice, how to find a voice teacher, sing on stage or in the studio and how to approach, and ace, an audition or singing competition. But that's not all, the appendices include a glossary of vocal music terms, a pronunciation reference, a guide to troubleshooting vocal problems and a list of the online audio tracks where there is some special bonus material. There are tips on proper posture and breathing for strength and stamina, lessons in rhythm, phrasing, dynamics and articulation and harmonic advice for both solo and ensemble singing. Extra large softback, 313pp, line art and musical scores.
