A Spectrum of Voices gets young teachers-in-training thinking about
what goes into becoming a good voice teacher. It is about so much
more than merely knowing facts about anatomy or being able to
demonstrate well for one's students. This book is unique in how it
brings together a diverse group of American teachers. -- John Nix,
professor of voice and voice pedagogy, University of Texas at San
The second edition of A Spectrum of Voices is a time capsule of wisdom from legendary vocal pioneers and current day wisdom from exemplary voice teachers. This book is highly recommended as a text for vocal pedagogy students and as a reference and resource for experienced voice teachers. -- Cynthia Vaughn, founder, MagnoliaMusicStudio.com and coauthor of The Singing Book
