About our book

*Nominated for ‘Outstanding Book of the Year Award for Theatre and Higher Education’ (ATHE)
*Named in the ‘Top 7 Training Books of 2014’ by The Stage

Singing is an integral part of the actor training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. For the first time, this accessible and practical guide offers an insight into the techniques and ideas which have been developed there over generations.

Jane Streeton and Philip Raymond are highly experienced teachers and performers. Their book is a companion for complete beginners as well as professional actors who wish to develop their understanding of Singing on Stage.

RADA graduates and other inspirational practitioners discuss the rewards and the importance of singing training.
In addition there are:

• listening suggestions
• vocal exercises
• lists of repertoire
• advice about how to choose the most appropriate songs for you

Jane and Philip positively advocate exploring the freedom of each actor’s authentic voice, as opposed to any ‘one size fits all’ or ‘quick fix’ approach. It is hoped that the joy of communicating the sensation of good singing will emerge from these pages and provide encouragement and inspiration to a future generation of actor/singers.
