Vocal Coach

Garyth Nair

Garyth Nair has been teaching and researching the human singing voice for over 25 years. He is Professor of Music at Drew University in Madison, N.J. where he conducts the Chorale and the Orchestra and is Director of Vocal Activities. Early in life, he chose to pursue music rather than his other love, biology. His research in voice now enables him to combine both loves in the pursuit of better vocal pedagogy techniques.

In addition to his work at Drew University, Mr. Nair is well known as the conductor of one of New Jersey's premiere choruses, the Summit Chorale. He is now in his 34th season as the conductor of this renowned regional institution.

Prof. Nair began his vocal and conducting studies at Westminster Choir College, Princeton, NJ, USA where he was appointed Assistant Conductor of the famed Westminster Choir - the first student in the College's history to be so honored. He later studied at Tanglewood with the late Sir Adrian Boult and completed an M.A. in Musicology at New York University. He is the former Conductor/Music Director of the Chamber Symphony of New Jersey and former Assistant Conductor of the New Jersey Symphony and the senior division of the Lakeland Youth Symphony.

Garyth Nair : Craft of Singing

Review: 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.
