This book presents a systematic approach to vocal techniques geared exclusively for the younger singer. This research-based text synthesizes the most recent findings in the literature, and presents it in a practical and useable format. It should help teachers of young singers to better understand the nature of the child and adolescent voice, and to provide for a sequence of developmental instruction of vocal skills. The first part provides information on the historical and philosophical perspectives on procedures of vocal training for children grades 1-12. The second part consists of 90 sequential techniques grouped in five major areas: respiration, phonation, resonant tone production, diction, and expression.
