A comprehensive volume on all facets of vocal performance, On the Art of Singing considers in detail established comparative vocal techniques, the specifics of interpretation and communication, the factors that contribute to career preparation and maintainance, and the application of functional information to the art of singing. Topics that most frequently concern singers and teachers at all levels of accomplishment are reviewed. These include an examination of pedagogical approaches to breath management, to laryngeal freedom, and to resonance balance, advice on career building, considerations of style and interpretation, and information on the physiology and acoustics of the singing voice. Data from diverse sources, otherwise inaccessible to the singer, are assembled and interpreted in the light of performance artistry. From his own long and distinguished career as a performer, teacher of singing, and vocal researcher, the author aims at making practical the relationship of technical proficiency to freedom in performance.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The content of the book is commendable, useful and illustrated with plenty of amusing anecdotes. * Elin Harries, Music Teacher, May 1997 *
On the Art of Singing is undoubtedly a labour of love, the fruit of years of dedicated training of voices. * Martin Bussey, B J Music 14/3 *
Richard Miller's eminence as a vocal pedagogue, is securely rooted in considerable performance experience, masterful teaching and extensive scientific research. Everything presented in this book is excellent, thoroughly researched and practised material. It should be required reading for every singer and teacher. This book is a compendium of authoritative. justified and distilled wisdom. Those of us who have sat humbly at the feet of the master are able to hear his voice clearly speaking and demonstrating throughout this text. Written by a cultured and refined teacher/artist and writer, this is the soundest and liveliest book on vocal pedagogy published recently. * the singer, December/January 1997/1998 *
The content of the book is commendable, useful and illustrated with plenty of amusing anecdotes. * Elin Harries, Music Teacher, May 1997 *
