ABOUT THE BOOK
A Systematic Approach to Voice: The Art of Studio Application is a professional resource presenting a framework for the integration of science-informed principles of voice production and pedagogical application in the training of singers. Author Dr. Kari Ragan has spent years using this organizational template of the five voice systems – respiration, phonation, registration, articulation and resonance – to identify technical challenges and design corrective vocal exercises to enable efficient singing.
Each of the voice system chapters contains a brief overview of the mechanics as well as key points for teachers, or “teacher takeaways.” The book’s core offering is vocal exercises which, framed within a systematic approach, provide strategies for the art of studio application. The intent is that this approach leads to technically proficient singing with the ultimate goal of serving great artistry.
