Editorial Reviews


Performers of opera and musical theatre are, in fact, singing athletes. We need to maintain our bodies and instruments with the training and focus of a marathon runner, and Dr. Friedlander has written a guide on how to embrace a lifestyle which will not only enhance physical health but also the health of one's instrument. Every singer should own a copy of this book! (Jennifer Rowley, Metropolitan Opera soprano)

Dr. Friedlander’s book offers important myth-busting, accessible and detailed fitness information, and a generous attitude toward developing artists. Motivated by her own needs as a singer, but now redirected to serve students,Complete Vocal Fitnessis both an eminently practical resource and a welcome manifesto. (The Voice and Speech Review)

Claudia Friedlander has a deep understanding of the biomechanics of singing, and she does a beautiful job of explaining it to the rest of us. For singers and teachers looking for ways to improve vocal technique, her book is the perfect place to start. (Deborah Voigt, internationally renowned soprano)

Finally, here is a book that treats singing as the athletic endeavor that it is. It offers step-by-step instructions for identifying then correcting physical imbalances through targeted stretches and strength training exercises. The illustrations are much more useful than the anatomy books we’ve used for years, because they address issues of the singer and include only the pertinent information. If you are serious about singing, this book should live on your piano! (Rod Gilfry, Associate Professor of Vocal Arts, USC Thornton School of Music, baritone)
