Singing, at its roots, is so simple. We can all do it from birth - listen to how loudly babies cry considering their tiny size !
As we learn more about the world this natural reflex can diminish. But all is not lost ! With good teaching and coaching, anyone can learn about their voice and...
I recommend the following books:
The Structure of Singing - Richard Miller
Great Singers on Great Singing - Jerome Hines
Hints on Singing - Manuel Garcia
Three very different and interesting books about singing!
As with any subject, practice is of the essence. So many people do not take this into account and cannot understand why they don't progress or at least very slowly. Exercises for fingers and voice are a must. Pieces and songs come later after a technique is established. Unfortunately, most...
I recommend the articles of David Jones, who is a New York-based singing practitioner with an incredible understanding of the singing voice and who writes with a great deal of clarity, giving his readers many ideas for exercises. These exercises are not the simple, mindless exercises that many...
Singing is something we all can do! I truly believe that! Yes, YOU can sing! Be it in the shower, Karaoke down the pub, a local choir or as a professional singer pursuing a career - we all have a voice! Granted not everyone will be gifted with an exceptional talent and strong determination to...

A quick mind and a slow body: The process of learning to sing.
The art of singing is at once an immensely complicated procedure and an extremely simple one. We can all sing, yet to train in singing we must make a conscious, learned activity out of an activity which we already, unconsciously...
Here are a few ideas I have with regard to the technical aspect of singing. I don't think anyone can underestimate the physicality of vocal production. Good posture (based on Alexander technique), a real sense of feeling the ground through your feet and a buoyant and flexible breathing mechanism...
All great performers take their work very seriously indeed, but none more so than the musician. Very few art forms combine both the left and right brain in the same way as music. We only have to look at one of Bach's intricately woven chorales to realise that music is where the wayward...
My main aim through teaching singing is to find the confidence within the student to sing to the best of their vocal ability. Personality can often get in the way even if the singer is confident already, but also, this very personality is hugely important for the voice - finding characters,...
