ADVENTURES IN SINGING combines a thorough introduction to the singing process with an anthology of 60 songs that are perfect for the beginning singer. The text offers a clear introduction to the basics of how the voice works along with medical voice-building techniques. Within each chapter, exercises help students explore their vocal potential and develop performance skills. Self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter help the students relate the content to their own experiences. Throughout, the text takes a holistic approach, reflecting the view that the study of singing helps students develop greater self-awareness of body and mind. The author views learning to sing as one of the best self-improvement courses one can undertake. The anthology in the second half of ADVENTURES IN SINGING consists of 60 songs - many in both high and low keys - representing art songs, arias, folk songs, hymns, musical theatre hits, and group songs. The anthology represents songs of different nationalities, historical periods, subject matters, moods, and styles. A bargain pre-pack of ADVENTURES IN SINGING with 2 cassettes of piano accompaniments is available. The cassettes include all of the songs in the anthology, so that students can rehearse outside of class.

ADVENTURES IN SINGING includes the most comprehensive coverage of tone production on the market, and at a level of detail appropriate for the amateur singer.
The 60-song anthology in ADVERTURES IN SINGING is prefaced by program notes that provide background on each song, to help the singer prepare a more informed interpretation. International Phonetic Alphabet notation and word-by-word English translations of all foreign texts are also included.
Two audiotapes and CDs of piano accompaniments for all songs in the anthology are also available with the text. Because many students lack sight-reading skills, the recordings include a faint instrumental rendition of the vocal line so students can sing along with the tape without the instrumental line intruding or competing with another voice.About the Author:
