I'm a professional singer and I found this book to be highly informative and quite entertaining...the author is witty, intelligent and not afraid to voice his opinion concerning the methodology employed by most so-called singing teachers and coaches...the truth is, most teachers and coaches in the singing field don't have a clue about the fundamentals and the mechanics of proper vocal techniques...I should know, because I've had quite a few charlatan teachers and coaches over the years...
no, this book isn't for the novice, trying to learn how to sing and the author never purports it to be...this book is for the educated professional singer and teacher and is one of the best all around books on this subject that I've read...some reviewers found the book to be "deep", "all talk" or "full of big words", but others in the field, who take singing seriously, found it to be cleverly written, well researched and a very enjoyable read...it's not a "how to" book, it's actually a "how not to" book...

So far I have been liking this book. If you can get through the very technical first couple of sections, it is a pleasure to read. All sorts of anecdotes, helpful suggestions, and scholarly advice. It is also very well-written, although the language is often ornate, but in the style of old literature. The author knows his subject like the master he is. His descriptions are concise and elegant. I already would recommend this book to an advanced singing student, and is essential for singing teachers. I wish my teacher had read it. I find myself looking forward to each oportunity I have to read more of this work.

It met my standard and was everything I needed

Awesome book! For anyone serious or realy wants to know vocal pedagogy. Would highly recomend it to anyone who sings.

This book will not teach you how to sing but it will teach you how to talk to people about singing. example: A person says to you. “Do you sing?” and you reply. “Yes I do.” Then they will say. Well tell me about it.” This is a typical peasant, swordsman & blacksmith scenario.

Reading this book will opening you up to a new breed of people.

Why did I choose rate this: I did not know there were people who get off on the talking part of singing rather than the performing part.

What did I like: This book is deep.

What did I dislike: You actually got people out there who prefer talking rather than sing.

Who would I recommend this book too: This will go straight to people who cannot sing, this will teach you how to bluff people.

Richard Miller writes numerous essays on several subjects of FAQ regarding the preparation, performance, pedagological mysteries, and marvel of the classically trained voice. His humor adds spark and interest that keeps you reading! Two of my favorite essays are entitled "McPedagogy" and "How to Really Bomb a Masterclass." Miller creates an invigorating experience through his advice on training, musical style and interpretation, preparation for the professional life, and vocal function. What a great learning tool!
Richard Miller has compiled a number of his columns formerly published in NATS Journal of Singing. Sorting the subject matter into four broader categories, he deals with issues of training the singing voice, musical style and interpretation, preparation for the professional life, and the singing voice and vocal function. Miller has definite biases and is not afraid to voice them. His essays are usually succinct and to the point, spiced up with comments such as: "Someone should call a halt to the proliferation of so-called "master classes" presented by performing artists who normally do not teach." and "Woofy baritones, tinny tenors, strident sopranos, and bovine mezzos can in no way serve as surrogates for healthy voices that sound like baritones, tenors, sopranos, and mezzos because their instruments work efficiently." This is a great read and must for voice teachers and students of singing.
