Esther Salaman's singing career started in 1940 with regular concerts and broadcasts. She then moved into teaching during which she evolved a distinctive method which many singers - some now famous - have found invaluable in developing their voices. Her book covers every aspect of voice production. She discusses her experience of personality behind the voice and comments on the drive and courage needed for a singing career as well as the fears and inhibitions that assail both professionals and amateurs.
“Salaman has written a little gem of a vocal instruction book based on the "bel canto" style of singing. In the book, she includes exercises for starting the note and vowel centering, agility, vibrazione, messa di voce, and resonance and offers solid advice on daily practice. ”
