In this brief and efficient work, Jennifer provides an academic look at the psychology, physiology, and neuroscience of the concepts presented in her book “The Art of Singing: Discovering and Developing Your True Voice”, further revealing the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of her method’s effectiveness.

“I’ve just read Learning to Sing for the second time and I know I will do so many times more. It is so eloquently written, so in the present, so informative and insightful, and with so much to give the reader. It is about life as well as singing; it is about the philosophy and psychology of being. I continue to recommend it.”
“The Art of Singing transformed me as a singer and teacher, and enriched my life. So I was surprised to find myself reading Learning to Sing with a bit of a critical eye. But I wasn’t disappointed. Every page has rich thoughts. Every question my mind brought up was refreshingly addressed.”
Anyone who calls themselves a singer. It’s the cheapest vocal therapy session you will ever get. Just perfect. Compared to The Art of Singing I felt this book was speaking to the reader more maturely, as if we graduated one class and moved on to the next level of delving within us. The Art of Singing was a more simplistic approach, an introduction fit for all levels, beginning and professional. It was an eye opening experience for me as a singer.
Jennifer Hamady captured my interest right from the start in this short book about how we relate to our voices and singing our song. I found this work inspiring because the message in it extends beyond our relationship to singing and into our relationship with life’s possibilities. Right from the start I was drawn in by the statement that “it is the belief about singing and the specialness of one’s voice …that largely determines both who sings and how well they do so.”
