Voicing: book  Released: January 2009 
   CANTABILE offers a fresh and comprehensive approach to vocal pedagogy. A ''spiral of learning'' allows singers to revisit basic concepts as they advance to deeper levels, and gives all readers a path to lifelong learning. A definitive source for individual singers, voice teachers and choral conductors, CANTABILE provides intricate illustrations, a complete glossary and extensive index, and specific vocal exercises for every student and teacher. This textbook will be the new standard for vocal study. When one hears ''vocal pedagogy'' they tend to have tired eyes. But this text book breaks the mold. Making complex concepts easily understood is the hallmark of Dr. Katharin Rundus' teaching career. Filled with anatomical drawings, pictures, graphs and loads of valuable vocal exercises, this book is wisely and attractively organized. Plus, every chapter includes a section specifically for the choral director - who should definitely understand the mechanics of the instrument they transform.
