      DESCRIPTION

      By William Leyerle

      Second Edition, Revised and Enlarged 1986

      The first edition of this book was widely acclaimed by reviewers, singers, teachers and students as an outstanding basic text on vocal development for voice class, beginning voice majors, and for studio use. The 1986 edition expands the volume from 7 to 12 chapters and incorporates a highly improved format which reflects the refinement of ten years' use in the author's studio and classrooms.

      INDEX

      ...This is an excellent book, initially intended as a basic text on voice production for college or university class voice students and voice majors. It is equally valid, however, for all singers and for teachers of singing... It is a pleasure to welcome William Leyerle’s valuable contribution to the field of vocal pedagogy.
