"Mr. Nair offers a direct, detailed but prosaically economical approach that is particularly useful in class voice situations as well as in teaching young singers. His concise expositions of basic vocal pedagogy with immediate practical application are unique in the field." Joseph Evans, Professor of Voice, University of Houston, Moores School of Music Drawing from his many years of private lessons and choral work, Garyth Nair, an experienced faculty member and Music Director and Conductor Emeritus of the Summit Chorale, has two goals in this book: 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. To carefully structure the learning of the foundational vocal skills necessary for real future development of each student's technique past the end of the 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 to cement into place good singing habits. Three songs, comprising works in Italian, English and German, are used to produce exemplary vowels and consonants and wonderful songs. The student receives the author's special advice and suggestions.

About the Author:

Garyth Nair, M.A. Garyth Nair, M.A. 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.

Review:

Debra Greschner, Journal of Singing, (2008): "...A textbook that can be used by students throughout their entire undergraduate career... Applied teachers (especially those who direct voice majors or minor in a class setting) and voice pedagogy instructors are recommended to investigate this text for their students."
