“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I am confident it will help bring all aspects of vocal pedagogy firmly into the 21st century.  Refreshingly, many different areas of pedagogy are included in the text so we can all work together to more fully understand the singing voice.  Up to the moment research is included along with an exploration of the evolving contemporary styles of singing.  Further, areas regarding teaching and curriculum in higher education are also reviewed.  All in all, this text a crucial addition to a professional's vocal library.” Jeanne Goffi-Fynn, Teachers College, Columbia University, USA.
