Royal Stanton : Steps to Singing for Voice Classes

Review: This outstanding volume is well-known for its simplicity, inclusiveness, and integrity to the fundamentals of the art of singing. The late Royal Stanton - an experienced teacher; the founder of Schola Cantorum, a symphonic choir of 150 voices; and a composer and arranger of many nationally published pieces - wrote with the flair to engage and hold the interest of newcomers venturing into the organized process of singing. His nine-step format provides students the opportunity to build on their voice-training achievements. Singing is more than endless exercises and technical devices, and Stanton's methods have proven effective in guiding beginning students from their initial tentative approaches to phonation, to the outer edges of performance and the rudiments of interpretation. Learning the joys of controlled singing in a friendly environment encourages beginners to think of singing as a natural, peer-approved activity.
