“The Second Edition of Vocal Technique embraces 21st-century perspectives for healthy voice training across all styles including classical, choral, and CCM. It acknowledges and credits commonalities and differences in variable resonance strategies, style implications for vibrato, children’s registers, differences in chest and head voice use according to style, registration for men and women, the transgender voice, and more on the voice during adolescence. It retains its clean, well-thought-out organization with clear, to-the-point illustrations. This is a resource independent and academic voice teachers and choral directors need!” — Karen Brunssen, Northwestern University and President, National Association of Teachers of Singing

“Davids and LaTour have constructed a comprehensive, research-based resource that draws singers, voice teachers, choral directors, and choral music educators into the same space around common principles related to vocal technique. The authors provide detailed explanations of key concepts, along with relevant strategies and best practices for engaging and supporting diverse populations of singers. This guide makes a substantial contribution to the field of vocal music and will assuredly enhance the work of singers and educators alike.” — Rollo A. Dilworth, Temple University and author, Choir Builders

“This book is a must-have for singers, teachers, and conductors of all styles. The content is well organized, backed by science, and explained with practical exercises. Best of all, it covers all styles of singing with plenty of resources to explore. A perfect book for entering the world of evidence-based voice pedagogy, with plenty for the experienced teacher to digest as well.” — Matthew Edwards, Shenandoah Conservatory and Artistic Director, CCM Vocal Pedagogy Institute
