Finding and Learning to Use the Singing Voice: A Manual for Teachers.
Gould, A. Oren
The child who is unable to reproduce a melody at a given pitch range can begin to "carry a tune" by learning to hear and control his singing voice and to match his voice with voices of other singers or with instruments. The "too low problem singer," the child with the most common difficulty, must learn to make successful song responses in his normal speaking voice and then to find his true singing voice. Consistent control of his singing voice depends on the development of singing skills--habits of manipulating tonal images and habits of employing the motor skills required in correlating the singing voice with tonal images. Most important to the solution of all singing problems is a positive attitude on the part of both teacher and pupil. (This manual, a product of the research reported in TE 499 967, contains examples of specific corrective techniques and materials.) (JS)
