This vocal pedagogy textbook breaks the mold. Making complex concepts easily understood has been the hallmark of Kathi Rundus' teaching career. Filled with anatomical drawings, pictures, graphs and valuable vocal exercises, this book is wisely and attractively organized. Plus, every chapter includes a section specifically for the choral director! Katharin Rundus is a nationally recognized teacher, conductor and singer. Her most recent performances include: Arianna a Naxos for the inaugural conference of the California Haydn Society, soprano solos for Arvo Paart's Passio, Vaughn Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem, Handel's Dixit Dominus, Mozart's Requiem, Haydn's Creation, Beethovan's Mass in C, and Bach's St. John's Passion and B Minor Mass. In addition to her private studio at CSULB, Dr. Rundus is the coordinator of Vocal Studies at Fullerton College, where she also conducts the Chamber Singes and the Women's Chorale. She received her Bachelors of Music from Coe College, her Masters of Music from Westminster Choir College, and her PhD in Musical Arts from the Claremont Graduate University.
