Kinesthetic Voice Pedagogy: Motivating Acoustic Efficiency, by Kenneth W. Bozemzn

Kenneth Bozeman does a remarkable job of making voice science understandable and accessible to every student and voice teacher.  In Kinesthetic Voice Pedagogy, Bozeman makes clear that the innate response of the body to express is the foundation for ideal Western classical singing, using today’s technology to back his argument.  No longer do voice scientists and the masters of Italian bel canto have to fight over how to teach.  Kenneth Bozeman has married the two beautifully.

Provenance, by Stephen F. Austin

An anthology of fifty-nine articles and essays that originally appeared in the Journal of Singing from 2005-2016. Austin’s work links historic and contemporary voice teaching, with additional support provided by voice science. Each new generation of singing teachers seems to think it must “reinvent the wheel:” Austin clearly proves that there is an alternate, more effective path to vocal excellence, based on the work of the greatest teachers in the history of singing.

Resonance in Singing: Voice Building through Acoustic Feedback, by Donald G. Miller

Science will never replace art in singing and teaching. But it can—and does—inform the art, enabling singers to perform with optimal beauty and vocal efficiency through a technique that is grounded in fact, not wishful thinking. Pioneers like Donald Miller are at the forefront of this movement. It is not coincidental that Miller is among that exceptionally rare breed: he is a trained scientist who also is a successful professional singer and college singing teacher. His work will help us all become better singers and teachers, while moving voice pedagogy toward full integration with scientific reality. Includes VoceVista voice analysis software. More information

Sing into your Sixties... And Beyond! by Sangeetha Rayapati

Rayapati's book breaks new ground in the pedagogic literature for singing. While information about the aging voice is plentiful in the disciplines of speech language pathology and audiology, few resources have been available that focus on voice training for mature singers—despite the fact that a major demographic shift is about to occur in our nation! In addition to her experience with aging singers as a conductor and chorister, she has provided voice instruction in group and one-on-one settings to people of all ages. More information
