Peterson is a new collegiate methods textbook written specifically for today’s emerging choral music teachers, guiding their growth as curious students while enriching their passion for changing lives through music. The textbook is written in a straight-forward and conversational style that compels the reader to think rather than to memorize and to problem solve rather than “find the correct answer.” Professors can use this book as a stand-alone text for choral methods, or as a supplement to an established syllabus and curriculum. Practicing educators may want to use these resources and refer back to this book throughout their professional career.

Welcome to the Cantabile family of vocal resources!

Cantabile –

A Manual About Beautiful Singing

CANTABILE offers a fresh and comprehensive approach to vocal pedagogy. When one hears “vocal pedagogy” they tend to have tired eyes. But this textbook 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. 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 has become the new standard for vocal study.

Cantabile Voice Class – All Products

A Manual About Beautiful Singing (P5023) was released a few years ago and has risen to be a staple course text for colleges across the country. This is the perfect follow-up – a classroom text for the undergraduate student. One could think of it as Cantabile-lite. The primary book still needs to be in the hands of the instructor, but students will enjoy a less-comprehensive version at a third of the price.

“A frank and sometimes irreverent approach to the subject of choral conducting, that dares to demand our excellence and scold our laziness – and said with true devotion and comedic wit.”
—Allan Petker, publisher

“Dehning’s book is insightful and challenging, offering practical advice as well as humorous approaches to a complex art. It is frequently scathing, but never dull. Some may think it too controversial, even out of bounds. One thing is certain: he is not afraid to laugh at himself or at others. A good sense of humor is a valuable trait.”
—Brian Lanier, reviewer
