    Unchartered path!

    I'd never seen singing in that light. I discovered mental blocks that I had no comprehension of before this book. I was looking for a better understanding of my instrument and this book definitely helped. Much thanks to the author...this book gave me a different approach and a much needed 'insight'! Highly recommended to open minds:P

    New age garbage......

    Spare me all of this 'new age' garbage. I sing therefore I am.....blah blah blah. Students who are looking to learn to sing don't need to visualize themselves as warriors, scientists or whatever ridiculous creatures the author proposes. Envisioning yourself as some space traveling harmonious astronaut doesn't solve any problems if you can't carry a tune. If you are going to take advice on a creative art from someone in a book, shouldn't it be from someone whose musical accomplishments are at least documented? If the author spent less time dreaming of ways to feel the music through sappy role playing and concentrated more on improving her own abilities to the point where her name was recognizable, perhaps her teachings would lend some actual credibility. If someone like Celine Dion wrote a book like this..tacky as it may be, at least she has some accomplishments behind her that justify her methods. This book lacks integrity in that it fails to adequately teach the reader anything about music....if you want to discover your spirit, save the $15 and turn on Oprah.
