The objective through these exercises is to help the pupil produce a pure resonant tone on clearly enunciated words. The work is divided into four sections; Preparatory Exercises on Vowels and Consonants, Word-Phrases, Intoning Exercises, Song-Studies. It is advised that section 1 should be studied first, exercises should then be selected from the other three sections.

If you want interesting vocal exercises this is the book for you. From simple stepwise exercises on 'tay' through to more dramatic songlike exercises, this book engages the singer from the start. This book does not just go through the motions; many of the exercises have their own musical character allowing the singer to develop musicality as well as technical proficiency. The book is divided into sections including sections for practising melismas, head-tones and diction.
