About the Author

Jennifer Hamady's ground-breaking book on singing and the psychology of performance is a must-read for every artist working today.

Using the medium of the voice, Jennifer shares her insights and experiences as a voice coach, therapist, and professional singer, which will open your eyes to how we all – musicians and others – allow fear, doubt, poor learning habits, preconceived notions, and overthinking to get in the way of clear and healthy singing, self-expression, and living.

With practical advice for releasing physical and emotional tension, establishing confidence and vocal strength, and embracing personal and musical optimism and wonder, The Art of Singing explores:

• Misconceptions about the voice and singing

• Finding the voice that was never lost

• Language and its role in singing and learning to sing

• Learning how you learn best and applying that wisdom to vocal learning

• The brain: how it works – its impact on singing and learning to sing – and how to make it work for you

• Fear and performance anxiety: liberating yourself from the mental shackles

• Reclaiming joy and confidence in your singing and self-expression

• Putting theory into practice: vocal physiology, technique, and delivery

The accompanying audio tracks – in Jennifer's own voice – captures a conversation about her approach and ideas, as well as exercises that will help you discover and develop your true and best instrument. Singers of every age, level, and musical genre will benefit from this insightful first book in Jennifer's The Art of Singing series.

Do you like psycho-babble?

If you like psycho-babble, you'll love this book. I'm sure there are a few pearls of wisdom encased in the hard shell of clams here ... but after a quarter of the way through I couldn't take any more. NLP, or neuro-linguistic programming is a thoroughly discredited minor school of psychotherapy developed by two California psychologists who armed with writing materials and 4 ounces of cocaine went in to the woods of Big Sur on the California coast and returned with their 'theory' and book, 'Frogs Into Princes.' I am a proponent of natural singing and can agree with much of what the author says regarding the straight-jacket of singing taught in higher education. But, c'mon! No such thing as a "too high" note for any given singer? Did you really want to hear Barry White sing soprano?
