Esther Salaman's singing career started in 1940 with regular concerts and broadcasts.
For the last 30 years she has been teaching and during this period has evolved a distinctive method which many singers - some now famous - have found invaluable in developing their voices.
This book covers every aspect of voice production. Ester Salaman discusses her experience of personality behind the voice and comments on the drive and courage needed for a singing career as well as the fears and inhibitions that assail both professionals and amateurs.
She has worked with boys' unbroken voices as well as those of adults and her ideas therefore appeal as much to singers in school choirs as to the operatic stage.
She gives a detailed plan for vocal health and technical exercises in the form of musical examples.
It should be of use to singers of all ages, their teachers and choir trainers.
