Reviews - What do customers think about The Science and Sensations of Vocal Tone?
THE book Sep 1, 2000
If you are a singing teacher, this volume is absolutely the most comprehensive exploration of internal sensations in the upper vocal tract that exists. E. Herbert Caesari was so far ahead of his time, we are just beginning today to understand the concept of what he called "air columns" in the vocal tract. The book is a "hard" read - but for the serious teacher who wishes to impart some useful info to his students pertaining to "what they should feel" when singing certain pitches and vowels, it is worth every moment of confusion. This is the teacher that Seth Riggs (the well known L.A. vocal coach) holds in deep respect. Caesari's book is not "up to date" in terms of "science" - but the underlying principles are unshakeable.(and, these principles are based on actuality - his terms are not) This is a must for the teacher who has had only "muscular" training and knowledge. It throws and entirely different light on the pedagogical process. Along with the Vennard book "Singing - Its Mechanism and Technique" and Richard Miller's numerous volumes on vocal technique, this book is a must have for the teacher!
