9781903765951: The Student Voice: An Introduction to Developing the Singing Voice

With a successful career as a singing teacher for more than a quarter of a century, author Colin Baldy has been frustrated by the lack of suitable reading materials aimed specifically at the student of the singing voice. Therefore, he has provided a useful resource with The Student Voice. Primarily designed for undergraduate and graduate level students, the book will also benefit mature singers, teachers, and those already in the singing profession who simply want to keep their technique and knowledge alive. The Student Voice includes some physiology, with suggested exercises and methods for developing the correct use of the student's physical instrument. It suggests a suitable repertoire to run alongside the exercises and contains a large amount of trouble-shooting advice. The author's intention is to encourage singing students and to assist them in avoiding common pitfalls. The book will also help singers identify vocal problems which they may already have developed.

Review:

'Baldy's writing style is instantly warm; initial impressions of this book are akin to working with a familiar mentor in a lesson or masterclass situation. This approachable writing style enables the reader to absorb the ideas and techniques that Baldy so clearly advocates - Vocal research is an ever increasing and often confusing field. This volume stands out from the wealth of available material for its ease of reading and strong introduction to vocal physiology - ' The Singer 'Colin Baldy has been clear and concise and throughout he speaks directly to the reader and provides examples wherever he can. As an introduction, The Student Voice has some useful information and provocative points for further discussion and research particularly for the enquiring student. The section, Repertoire with Purpose, could be useful to novice teachers and, again, thought provoking for the more experienced.' Newsletter of the British Voice Association
