“This thoroughly enjoyable book, written in an engaging and light-hearted tone, will be of great benefit to actors and those teaching them… the personal and friendly tone of the book gives you a real sense of the encouraging style of the teachers who have written it, and with an unerring ethos of vocal freedom, release and relaxation, it is rather refreshing to read!  All in all, a well-written book giving a new and much-needed additional perspective to singing training.”

Jamie Read “The British Voice Association: Communicating Voice” Volume 15: Issue 3 – Spring 2015


“The authors of this book explain the excellent singing techniques taught at RADA, which are vital for any actor or serious drama student. My singing training at RADA has seen me through musicals and Shakespeare from Miss Saigon to King Lear.”

Jonathan Pryce, Actor, Olivier and Tony Award Winner and RADA graduate


“Everything an actor needs to know about singing is here. Jane and Philip are true experts and their book should be on every actor’s bookshelf!”

“The excellent and useful ‘Singing on Stage’.. sets out to share RADA training with a much wider audience than can possibly be accommodated on its famously over subscribed courses… (The book) starts from the premise that any actor will improve his or her stage technique by learning better use of the voice via singing. It explains its rationale in some detail, with lots of supportive quotes, before moving on to practical advice for individual actors. They learn how to get the best from singing lessons, how to practise and how to use the learning, along with more obvious things such as breathing and choice of repertoire… (There are) many listening examples often sung by successful RADA graduates such as Cynthia Erivo.”

Susan Elkin “The Stage” June 2014
