Instructional Materials & Songbooks for Soprano Voices

A soprano is a singer with a voice that usually ranges from middle C to "high C", two octaves above middle C (i.e. C4-C6). Of course some can go lower or higher. In four part chorale style harmony, the soprano takes the highest part, which usually encompasses the melody. The word "soprano" generally refers to a singer of this highest vocal range and to his or her voice. Male singers whose voices have not yet changed are known either as "boy sopranos" or, in the Anglican and Roman Catholic traditions, as trebles, whereas adult male sopranos singing falsetto are known as countertenors or sopranists.

Mathilde Marchesi: Twenty-Four Vocalises for Soprano

Mathilde Marchesi was a mezzo-soprano, teacher of singing, and exponent of the bel canto technique. She was an advocate of a naturalistic style of singing: she called for a fairly instinctive method of breathing and was particularly concerned with vocal registration, calling it "the Alpha and Omega of the formation and development of the female voice, the touchstone of all singing methods". 24 excellent vocal exercises that will help develop, strengthen and warm up your voice. Specifically for Sopranos and Mezzo-Sopranos and have been used by some of the great singers of the past 100 years.

A young dramatic soprano should not be forced into a soubrette mold, nor should the soubrette soprano be assigned dramatic tasks. Although all soprano voices have common characteristics, each type has unique features that require a particular approach in teaching. Training Soprano Voices addresses this issue directly by providing a complete and reliable system for training each type of soprano voice. Designed as a practical program for singers, teachers, and voice professionals, it couples historic vocal pedagogy with the latest research on the singing voice. The book emphasizes the special nature of the soprano voice and the proper physiological functioning for vocal proficiency. For each category of voice, Miller supplies a detailed description, recommends appropriate literature, and provides an effective system for voice building, including techniques for breath management, vibratory response, resonance balancing, language articulation, vocal agility, sostenuto, proper vocal registration, and dynamic control. The book concludes with a daily regimen of vocal development for healthy singing and artistic performance. Dozens of technical exercises, vocalization material taken from the performance literature, and numerous anatomical illustrations are included.
