While Lehmann goes on a bit much about her thoughts about conservatories, when she moves into the core of the book, the physiology of singing, the presentation is quite nice. In particular, her tips for how singing should feel can start to be felt as soon as they are tried out. Her tips on breathing - you don't need a belly full of air, you need a way of creating a consistent air stream - are great.

I read the first six pages of this book. I was thoroughly disappointed. Lehmann drags on about the science of singing and I found I had read a whole pages without paying attention to one word. Though I love singing,(I earned a solo in my choir concert) this was hard to bear. I'm deleting my sample immediately after I hit the post button.

A very in-depth study of the physiology involved in singing. I recommend this book for all singers who want to progress, and aren't afraid of getting their hands dirty.
