Adventures in Singing combines a thorough introduction to the singing process with an anthology of over 70 songs. It offers a clear introduction to the basics of how the voice works along with methodical voice-building techniques. The popular text takes a holistic approach throughout, reflecting the view that the study of singing helps students to develop greater self-awareness of body and mind. Piano accompaniments of the songs in the anthology are included on the CD.
