Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.--Victor Hugo

The Singing Book by Meribeth Bunch and Cynthia Vaughn is an excellent vocal resource. I have used this numerous times for private vocal lessons. They cover "The First Steps To Singing Easily" which include "healthy singing," "Preparing to sing," "Selecting Music to Sing," "Learning Music Efficiently," "Practice Habits," and "Performing." Part Two delves into different styles and genres of singing. They encourage you to sing from the beginning while gaining confidence through given vocal exercises. Proper singing is covered thoroughly as they exlpain how it helps you to sing any style. This is very useful for teachers as well as vocal students. Visit their student website at www.wwnorton.com/web/singing.
