Synopsis

While many texts and courses on the art of singing offer comprehensive overviews of technique and performance few have time to delve into the specific questions they spawn. Solutions for Singers explores these unanswered questions filling in gaps that professional performers students of singing and voice teachers have long sought to close. Fielding over 200 questions distinguished teacher and performer Richard Miller tackles problems raised during hundreds of his master classes and pedagogy courses. He deliberately avoids abstract generalities concentrating instead on specific recurring questions: What are some good exercises to loosen or relax tension in the back of the tongue? Do you apply the same principles regarding breathing to a younger student that you do to older students? What is meant by voiced and unvoiced consonants? Is there a female falsetto? Through such specialized questions Miller probes the very essence of artistic expression. The questions are organized under ten broad topics which Miller considers from various angles. He couples traditional and modern philosophies to present the most relevant and precise solutions. The result is an invaluable handbook for singers which read either sequentially or selectively provides a unique and pragmatic approach to vocal artistry and technique.
