A NEW ERA
The Great American Songbook is considered the bread and butter of the jazz singer’s repertoire and the epitome of the art form. These “standards” have wafted through our lives, our parents’ lives, and in some cases, our grandparents’ lives. But so many other songs have made their way into the repertoire – and the collective unconscious – that I think it’s time to enter a new era. The songs of A New Era are snapshots of an earlier time interlaced with the music of today.

SONG LITERATURE FOR THE CONTEMPORARY SINGER
This upcoming book is the first volume in a series of pedagogical resources for teachers and students.
This book does a great job of integrating many facets of singing. Time is spent on both the psychological and the physiological components of singing. And it’s easy to read.
One of my favorites for integrating breath and sound. This book provided one of my “light bulb moments” right when I needed it.
If you are a singer that is trying to get out of your own way, read this book. If you are serious about taking your performing to the next level, read this book. It takes time and work but it is worth it!
