Jeannie Gagne : Belting - A Guide to Healthy, Powerful Singingnew

Review: Belting is a strong way of big singing that has become very popular in contemporary styles. It is heard in everything from rock to hip-hop to pop to musical theater to the plethora of award shows.

They hear their favorite artists belt-singing throughout their favorite music, yet the resources teaching healthy belting techniques are few and far between. Belting for the Contemporary Singer seeks to remedy the situation. The fact is, belting can be done well and without causing injury. This book presents the facts about belting, what approaches work and which to avoid. Its online video and audio demonstrate good techniques and exercises.

Adam Perlmuter : Perfect Pitch Method - A Musician's Guide to Recognizing Pitches by Earnew

Review: Perfect pitch - also called absolute pitch - has been a source of endless fascination for hundreds of years. The ability to recognize musical tones with no reference is often viewed as a kind of magical power, a gift that only a select few musicians are born with, a skill that cannot be learned. But perfect pitch is largely a misunderstood phenomenon. The Hal Leonard Perfect Pitch Method is designed to help you develop a sense of perfect pitch. In the process, your overall musicianship will benefit and you'll start listening to music on a deeper level and getting more satisfaction from it. At the heart of this book is a series of 49 ear-training sessions, one per day for seven weeks, using the included CDs or the online audio. Many of the lessons include three separate drills. You can do just one and save the others for later, or all three at the same time. Take your time, advancing to the next session only when you're satisfied with your results on the previous session. Pretty soon, you'll notice a marked improvement in your pitch acuity!

Songlist: What Is Perfect Pitch?, What Is Relative Pitch?, Other Frequently Asked Questions, How To Use This Book, Notes and Color, Starting Off On The Right Foot, Audiation, Session Prep, Listening Sessions, Answer Keys For Questions

King's Singers : Let It Snownew

Review: One of Germanys best-loved classical performers joins forces with a legendary close-harmony group for a winter-themed album to bring warmth to the dark months of the year: Albrecht Mayer & The Kings Singers. The pairing of probably the worlds most famous and accomplished oboist, with the UKs celebrated vocal ensemble The Kings Singers is a heavenly musical partnership. The interplay of colors, melodies and harmonies between these performers enchant and delight in Baroque, classical and seasonal favorites. Mayer, the oboist with the magical tone, is renowned for the sublime singing quality of his playing. On Let It Snow the tone of his oboe blends magnificently with the silky sounds of a group that has been entertaining audiences across the globe since 1968. This specially chosen mixed-genre program is woven around the theme of winter: snow, ice, fireplaces, sleigh rides, Christmas, New Years, Chanukah.
