The package comprises two DVDs. The first, Vocal Technique for Young Singers is an easy-to-follow guide covering basic breathing and posture work through to more advanced training, dealing with issues such as breathiness in the voice, or articulating clear text. The young singing pupils in the film range from the ages of 7 to 18.
The second, Adolescent Male Voice Change, shows boys in all stages of vocal change, demonstrating a method of easy and quick recognition of each stage and the singing range at each level.
Standalone, or purchased in addition to the print edition, this film illustrates the vocal exercises from the book clearly and expertly. Together, the book and film make an invaluable resource for anyone working with young singers: singing teachers, classroom music teachers and choral leaders.
