"A Dictionary for the Modern Singer is an indispensible guide for studnents of singing, vocal pedagogues, and lovers of the art of singing. In addition to classical singing, genres, and styles, musical theatre and popular and global styles are addressed. With an emphasis on contemporary practice, this work includes terms and figures that influenced modern singing styles. Topics include vocal pedagogy, voice science, vocal health, styles, genres, performers, diction, and other relevant topics. This dictionary will help students to more fully understand the concepts articulated by their teachers. Although texts and glossaries on particular aspects of singing already exist, A Dictionary for the Modern Singer fills a unique gap in the singer's library because it is the only one-volume general reference geared toward today's student of singing. An extensive bibliography is invaluable for students seeking to explore a particular subject in greater depth. Illustrations and charts further illuminate particular concepts. Additional appendixes address stage fright, tips on practicing, repertoire selection, audio technology, and feature an introduction to exploring non-classical styles."--Back cover.
