Your singing voice, just like any other instrument, needs care and practice to ensure that it sounds its very best. Whether you’re an amateur or a professional, a teacher or a student, supplemental vocal instruction books can give you the tools and training you need to get the most out of singing voice. Not all questions or obstacles come up in the middle of a lesson, which is why supplemental vocal instruction books are so important. These books, in a lot of ways, act like a teacher or support system that a student can call upon whenever they need help or a question answered. For this reason alone, they are a valuable tool for any singer.
When choosing a supplemental vocal instruction book, it’s important to make sure you have the correct book for your needs. If you’re a teacher, you should ask yourself if you’re going to be teaching predominantly male or female students. If male, you may want to pick up the Contemporary Singing Techniques - Men's Edition Book/CD from Hal Leonard. If female, don’t worry, there’s a contemporary singing technique’s book for women as well. If there’s an even split, you can grab both to make sure you’re prepared!
If you’re a beginner or you’re teaching beginners, it’s important to purchase books that are reflective of this skill level. Carl Fischer An Introduction To Sight Singing offers a great general introduction, while more specific books such as the G. Schirmer line of material for Mezzo-Sopranos, Sopranos, and Tenors can offer added insight for specific vocal types. Regardless of singing style or skill, these books will give you and your students the fundamentals to succeed.
Training your voice is a skill that takes time and effort. With a supplemental vocal instruction book you can give yourself the tools you need to become a powerful voice within a choir of singers or on your own with a dazzling solo.
