  • This book is absolutely fascinating. Very informative. These voice teachers are at the very top of their craft, and yet, they all have a different vocabulary in explaining, many times, seemingly, the same things. I especially liked the interview with Jeanie LoVetri. She seemed to be the most well-spoken, honest, and clearest in explaining the process of her work, and the work in general. This is a great book for anyone who studies voice, or teaches voice. Buy the book, you'll be glad you did! :)

  • Melton interviews many fine voice teachers. I was expecting it to be more like Jerome Hines's book "Great Singers on Great Singing," but, there are only basic questions, no follow up questions to explain technique. Whereas Hines might ask a question such as "Is breathing important to you?" and the singer would say "Yes," Hines would simply ask something like "Please explain the technique you use for breathing and breath support." Melton just takes "Yes" for an answer. I kept waiting for her to ask the teacher to explain their technique for breathing, support, placement, etc.

    Very disappointing that Melton had many fine voice teachers to speak with and failed to do any in-depth interviewing. I'm sorry but I have to give this book a "fail" based on bad interviewing ability. I did not like constantly saying to myself "Ask them HOW..!"

  • As a singer and actor and former ballerina, this book will be my constant companion from now on. It puts you at ease knowing there are many approaches to the same goal. Working on instinct can take you only so far and now I want to learn more of the anatomical way my sounds ate produced. Whether you are looking for exercises to find your mix or striving to prevent injury during an eight show week, this book has it all. Thank you Joan Melton!

  • Joan Melton's "Singing in Musical Theater" is a compilation of interviews with some of the world's formost musical theater voice pedagogues. She takes a similar format to the one used by Jerome Hines in his classic book "Great Singers on Great Singing," in which she asks the same probing questions of each interviewee. The similarities and differences of their answers then become the primary point of interest as the reader learns by comparison/contrast. The book does not present details of any specific system, but limits itself to overarching concepts and philosophies. I would recommend this book highly to anyone interested in learning about the culture of musical theater style singing.
