Designed for college singing or voice studio courses, SIMPLY SINGING provides up-to-date technical and scientific information, as well as insights into the real world of the stage performer. The book is divided into three parts -- "Technique" chapters that ground students in the basics of singing, "Performance" chapters that offer practical suggestions for applying these basics, and an extensive "Song Anthology." Each chapter ends with a list of "Helpful Hints" and exercises, enabling the student to immediately put into practice what they have just learned.
