Format: Hardcover
This wonderful book is THE definitive book on singing - an inspired, clear explanation of the singing instrument and how to develope and maintain it. The book is a must for any serious student and teacher of singing. Long thought to be out of print, there are some 600 copies, new, available direct from Rodd-Marling's family at an affordable price. Do not be tempted to pay anything over the asking price of 21.00 pounds plus postage for this book.

This book is a great basis for serious study in singing. It has a wealth of info obviously well-researched and founded in science. If you are serious about study of the voice, this should be on your shelf.

Always interesting to read what other intelligent singing teachers have to say about the very complex matter of learning how to sing. Considering how difficult it is to catch in words....... Very brave to go and try!

3.0 out of 5 stars Clear Communication is the problem 13 Dec. 2003
By Hoyt Neal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read this book and am still studying it. It has good information for serious students of singing.
However, one will not get the information on a casual read through. This book needs to be rewritten in plain, clear, common English. It needs to be reorganized so that the progression of ideas is clear.
The authors use obscure terms that are not defined until somewhere in the middle or end of the book, or at all. The authors are used to addressing a close-knit audience who may immediately know what they mean by "inspanning," innervated,"
and "phonasthenia." If one is not part of "the group," one has to have a dictionary to read it and even that will not help at times. One has to work to understand what is being said. That is not a good thing if you want to influence others.
I am in the process of outlining the book to help me master the key concepts. That is because I am highly interested in the topic.
Also, the book promises to address issues, but I don't feel that they really succeed.

The purpose of the accompanying cassette is to illustrate what is discussed in the book, but I am not sure it does.
I will continue to study what is being said and may return to write an update.
