A compelling text and truly beneficial book for both amateurs and professionals and, most importantly, for those voice teachers, coaches, choral directors, and singing voice specialists who provide care and support for them. Judith Wingate addresses typical vocal health problems encountered by singers and offers them, and their caregivers, practical suggestions, including straightforward, step-by-step exercises to improve vocal function. In particular, the book focuses on the needs of special groups of singers, such as public school music teachers and choral directors.


"...A recommended addition to the library of either the amateur or professional singer because it is a compact compilation of vocal health wisdom.... An invaluable resource, both as a teaching tool and as a guidebook for their own vocal health."
Debra Greschner, Journal of Singing (2008)
