HEAR WHAT YOUR READ
Tipbook Vocals was written in close collaboration with classical and non-classical singers and teachers, therapists, and other experts. They introduce you to singing in tune, breathing techniques, singing loudly without hurting your voice, and a host of other subjects. The book also sheds a light on various singing methods, it explains the concept of registers (and why some experts reject that very concept), and provides dozens of handy tips on voice care, memorizing lyrics, and pronunciation. Interactive Tipcodes even let you hear what you're reading about!
Non-classical singers will appreciate the chapter on microphone selection and technique, while a chapter on reducing stage fright will be helpful for singers in all styles, at all levels. A glossary and an extended index allow you to easily find what you're looking for, turning the book into a handy reference guide.
