Practical hints, advice and information for training and trained performers who need to keep their singing voice in working trim. Not a how-to-sing book! The writing is clear and down-to-earth, spiced with a sense of humor. Witty illustrations, coupled with the authors warm voice, guide the reader through wide-ranging topics vital for singers, actors and other professional performance practitioners. Whats the right song for me? Which microphone should I buy? How do I cope with asthma? Eating dos and donts for singers? Can I overcome my stage-fright? What to wear to an audition? How does air travel affect my voice? These pills wont harm my voice, will they? Pat Wilson addresses these practical questions, and many more, in the updated 2nd edition of this popular handbook. Well-indexed and reader-friendly, its professionally-focused information is accessible to students, performers and voice teachers alike. Pat Wilson has written the essential guide for singers of all styles of music. - Robert Marks (Broadway vocal coach) A useful manual with sound advice and many fresh ideas for students, teachers and performers. Australian Journal of Music Education (review) The text is highly engaging, underpinned by scholarly research, yet very accessible and helpful a joy to read!
