This is the perfect first collection for many voice students, whether they are teens or college singers or adults. Joan Boytim has selected songs appropriate for each voice type, and has chosen keys that suit the vocal needs of novice singers studying in traditional, generally classical lyric singing. The editions of the songs in these collections are short and straight-forward. Teachers have found these books invaluable. To make the collections even more useful, each volume is offered in a book/companion CD edition with piano accompaniments recorded by pianist Laura Ward.Joan Frey Boytim is the author of 'First Book of Broadway Solos: Mezzo-Soprano/Alto Edition', published 2001 under ISBN 9780634022821 and ISBN 0634022822.
