A new text with two principal aims: to provide a foundation of anatomical, physiological, acoustical and medical knowledge for students in the belief that one must know how something works before one can alter or repair it, and also to carefully structure the learning of the foundational voice skills necessary for the development of each student's technique beyond the length of a single course. Borrowing from Voice Science but staying firmly centered in the studio or classroom, the text helps the reader with a raw vocal ability understand the function and care of their vocal instrument. In the second part, the book begins a carefully graduated approach in building good singing habits. Three paradigm songs, one in Italian, one in English and one in German, are employed to help the reader practice and guage personal progress.
