Item Description...
Popular for more than two decades among college voice teachers and their students, this outstanding, authoritative vocal pedagogy text is an invaluable manual. It thoroughly examines the vocal problems prospective voice teachers will encounter daily in the teaching studio and choral rehearsal. The author's approach is a unique one, based in large part on diagnostic procedures similar to those used by doctors. As each vocal fault is presented, its identifying characteristics or symptoms are stated, its possible causes are discussed, and corrective procedures are suggested. An especially valuable feature is the book's accompanying CD that contains fourteen male and female voice samples of the various vocal faults discussed in the text, enabling students to better identify basic characteristic sounds associated with each fault. Current and prospective choir directors and voice teachers who need help in improving the vocal sounds of choir members or students will find this practical guidebook to be an ever-present help in time of trouble.

Woth buying but...  Mar 10, 2008
This is one of the best books on vocal pedagogy ever written. I just got this edition in order to have the CD which I hadn't purchased with the first edition I had bought. The CD pinpoints vocal faults clearly. However, the sound quality of the recording is LOUSY. And to top it all off, this edition is really a reprint of the 1994 revised issue. So far so good, but the quality of both the paper and the printing is awful: on some pages the printing is REALLY blurry. If you can get the 1994 edition, do it, for it is much easier to read.
Great gift!  Aug 24, 2007
I actually bought this book as a gift for my best friend. She was going to start conducting a choir this semester, and she's planning on doing her masters on vocal pedagogi. She had this book in her wish list, and she had been always talking 'bout how much she wanted that book ASAP. So, I got it for her as a gift. Ever since it arrived, and I gave it to her, she has it with her ALL THE TIME!! Every little chance she gets to read, she picks up that book! And now she's always talking about how great the book is, and it's perfect, and has so many great things that she's learning. I would say she's extremely satisfied! So, I guess it's a great book and I can say I recomend it to all of those who want to learn about vocal faults, great to have in your personal libraries. Enjoy!
Symptoms, Causes, Cures  Jul 26, 2007
This book is a reference manual on the diagnosis and correction of vocal faults. I have already underlined many pertinent statements in the book, and I have added a few notes on the side. This book examines vocal problems that are encountered in the teaching studio, and it teaches one
to diagnose and correct vocal faults: Posture, Breath and support, Phonation, Registration, voice Classification, Resonation, Articulation, Speech,etc.
A CD is included.
Excellent for Choir Directors!  Mar 27, 2007
I loved this book. I own 6 other books on the training of singers but this new acquisition is the BEST. It is short and to the point which tells me the author knows what he is talking about and gets down to business. It is filled with practical ideas for choir directors in working with members individually on their voices. He follows the same teaching sequence I was taught years ago - breathing, phonation etc.; and I have used it successfuly to help my singing and other singers for years. Each vocal fault is clearly identified and many suggested exercises are provided to help the singer overcome their vocal faults to produce the best sound possible. I have been singing in church choirs since childhood. I am also a choir director at my church. I learned several things that were helpful to me personally. I was able to put the teaching immediately into practice; and it improved my tone immediately (thought I was above average in ability to begin with). I was able to take each topic and boil the main teaching down to a sentence or two to help identify vocal faults; and then I wrote a sentence or two on the fixes! This make a good cheat sheet or quick reference to use during choir practice. Wonderful book!! Would highly recommend it to church choir directors or vocal trainers!
Good book/cd  Feb 21, 2006
This book is very helpful and has good information. I am glad I purchased it and was pleased with the dealer's service.
