Description
by James Jordan, Kathy Kessler Price, Sean McCarther
 
Applying voice science to Choral Ensemble Pedagogy
 
Book
 
This important volume brings together the latest knowledge of voice science, voice pedagogy, conducting, and accompanying into a single volume. It is a valuable resource for choral conductors, no matter the age or experience of their ensembles.
 
The Anatomy of Tone explores essential aspects of anatomy, physiology, and acoustics, and describes their impact on choral teaching and rehearsal. In addition, this book reviews groundbreaking scientific information on spacing of singers and its effect upon intonation and vocal health.
 
This volume contains pedagogical information pertaining to:
 
• Breathing
• Resonance
• Formants in the Choral Rehearsal
• Structuring the Choral Warm-Up
• The Use of Breath as a Foundation of Expressive Choral Singing
• The Use of Legato as a Primary Tool in the Choral Rehearsal
• Choral Spacing for Balanced Resonance
• Teaching of Specific Vowels and Their Internal Architectures
• Use of Harmonically Based Warm-Ups
• Piano Accompanying to Support Good Vocalism and Building Listening Skills
 
 
"Though knowledge of vocal anatomy/physiology and acoustical theories have existed for centuries, technology now enables singers to see their voices in action, to measure sound pressure levels in performance/rehearsal spaces, and to understand resonance frequencies within the human instrument in ways we never have before. Take advantage of this information! Put it into action to create choirs whose singers do not have to pay the price of over-singing. Enable singers to sing throughout their lifespans with joy and freedom, thereby producing the most exquisite music of which they—and you—are capable."
 
—Kathy Kessler Price, from the Foreword
