About The Book

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.
