          This book was very helpful in terms of voice placement and resonance, but the CD tutorials could have started slower, rather than leaping straight in to the exercise. I'm not versed in reading music and so couldn't work out the speed or note just by looking, which meant I was left listening to the same part over and over just to get the timing right.

          I really enjoyed this book. My technique in terms of breathing and practice routines has never been too strong, and this book turned me on to a lot of great tips concerning those topics. Also, it introduced me to a lot of the little things that go into singing that really helped me perfect my voice and boost my confidence in my abilities. This book was cool too because a lot of vocal books don't come with CDs containing examples, and the CD included with this book is a great reference/practice guide. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to refine and improve their singing technique/process. Check it out!

          This is really great book! It really helped me. For a long time I was sure that I am not on business to sing at all. This book totally destroyed my impression of myself. It was the first time when I realized that singing is also possible for me. I still can’t qualify myself as a Singer - it’s really long way, but at least this book help me to make a first step on that way.
