Product description

Review

'Singing is the most passionate form of conscious verbalised communication in the human species. It is therefore appropriate that a book on the singing voice be filled with passion - and this book is. Singing: Personal and performance values in Training is not for the faint hearted or those looking for a middle road. It is not a follow-by-numbers instruction book or a scientifically based explanation of the singing voice. It is a bold and decisive statement in which Peter Harrison puts pen to a deeply personal manifesto - an unashamed call to arms of what he feels should be occurring in the psyche, the mind, the heart and the life of every singing pedagogue. ln every page there is a heartfelt claim about the singing voice: the condition and needs of the singer; the appetites of the listening public that shape the singing landscape; the common science that informs and can mislead, the singing teachers and institutions; or, the meaning of what it is to sing. Myths are challenged, sacred cows threatened, and the gauntlet thrown down to many deeply held beliefs... this book is well overdue in the singing literature as it places the need of the singer, or singing student, at the centre. It challenges singing pedagogues to take moral inventory of their motives, the ethics of their behaviour their attachments to schools of teaching, their knowledge of the vocal system, the place and use of science in an artistic expression that is fundamentally individual and unique. Harrison acknowledges that the reason we sing is to communicate the heightened emotion and passion that only the sung message can convey. Whether you agree with him or not - if you read, and reflect upon, his words you'll be a better singing teacher for it.'
