There are so many books about singing but so few about the physical voice, its look, its feel. If you want to play the violin, you buy one built to function. You can hold it, tune it, learn fingering and bowing techniques and, given a musical imagination, be some kind of artist with it. Do you know what your vocal body looks like, feels like? Until you do, to what are you applying your musical imagination? In SINGING: Nature’s Gift to You you will find answers to that question.
Singing is not about being a “star” unless you want it to be. Singing is part of your nature, an expression of your consciousness, an emotional release, a tonic for your psyche, the primal scream gone pretty.
The journey of self-discovery of your melodic nature can be rested whenever you like. Just because you work-out in a gym doesn’t mean that you are dreaming of a Mr. Universe crown. There are so many plateaus after becoming “fit”. Hang out where you are most comfortable. The workout that Franco Spoto proposes here, after basic understanding of support, breath pressure and feeling the physical voice, can help you become the most natural jazz, folk or pop singer. The more diligently you work at it, the more balanced, strong and flexible your natural voice and, given those properties uniquely your own, the wider the choices of music open to you.
This book offers a vehicle for understanding your voice and becoming the best shower singer that you can imagine or achieving stardom in the opera house and all local stops in between. It’s about you.
