Adventures in Singing combines a thorough introduction to the singing process with an anthology of 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. There is an additional CD available for purchase that provides piano accompaniments of the songs in the anthology. There is also an online learning Center at http: //www.mhhe.com/ais4 that provides additional student support.
