    This is the best book for me

    I am 14 years old and i love to sing, my family thinks i am great and so do my friends but I wanted something a little more to practice and learn from. So i got this book and it is great it even helped me be the leader of the high school choir class. It is a book that changed my freshmen year of high school and maybe the rest of my life.

    'Singing' Turns Idiots into students of voice.

    As a life long want-to-be singer I thought this book was fun, informative and it gives me hope! The historical references, description of physical skills required to sing well and the wide ranging musical genres made this fun. Music teachers should have this...so should music students. John
