An excellent resource for teachers of singing. July 17 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Emmons gives clear instruction and good advice about constructing, preparing for, and executing song recitals. She includes specific examples of recital programs for different levels of singers and for different kinds of recitals. One of the most useful tools in the book is an appendix of suggested songs for voice types and with different instrumentation.

More than informational, no less than inspiring Jan. 21 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The most useful tools are the repertoire lists and sample programs. However, Emmons/Sonntag have put together a most universal approach for all parties involved in the recital including inspiring information of what often seems to be a lost art form.
Must have for Vocal Artists and Voice Teachers Dec 25 2013
By Carrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a must have for vocal performers (mostly those of classical background) and voice teachers and alike. Full of knowledge, Emmons and Sonntag do not disappoint...on most things. I really love reading non-fiction and learning anything related to music and vocal performance. However, I found this book to be an extremely dry read. There are parts that are much more "entertaining" but I wish this book was a little more captivating on a topic that many people may find dull.

Largely a waste of paper! Aug. 19 2010
By Emmanuel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an experienced international recitalist and teacher, I bought this book because it's title suggests that it would be a useful resource for my students who are typically young, aspiring professional singers. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. This book repeatedly states the blindingly obvious, offers questionable opinions as facts, and proposes some highly impractical programme options. For better advice buy books by Sergius Kagen!
