Vocal Anthologies - It's taken me a while to find the best vocal anthologies. Although any lyric song can be a good teaching song, I like to use song anthologies for students for technique and competition work. The Folk Songs for Solo Singers are good for young beginners either adult or younger children as the ranges are modest. The First Book of Solos series edited by Joan Frey Boytim are my latest find! They are superb collections of art songs that are appealing to most first years students. All songs are chosen with each voice type in mind and there are many English songs appropriate for competitions. And of course, the Italian 26 are always appropriate.

Musical Theater Anthologies   For children, The Kid's Broadway Songbook is a good start as it features a variety of songs sung by children on Broadway. The Teen's Musical Theatre Collections offers a wide range of popular songs in varied ranges while The First Book of Broadway Songs selects songs for each voice type, some with transpositions in easier keys for beginning singers. For aspiring professionals, The Musical Theatre Anthologies are a must as they offer a variety of songs by voice type in the original keys with arrangements taken directly from the score.

Opera Anthologies - For advanced voice students, here are the most commonly used opera anthologies plus some new titles. The Schirmir Operatic Anthology series has been around for a while and they offer a mix of arias for each voice type. The new Robert E. Larson books are wonderful as they include English translations as well as performance notes on each aria. Coloraturas will enjoy 15 Coloratura Arias and Coloratura Cadenzas both of which were selected and edited by Beverly Sills' voice teacher, Estelle Liebling. For the computer user, there is the new Ultimate Aria Album for each voice type which offers a CD of printable arias which includes rare and hard to find arias plus many uncommon early Italian arias.

Oratorio Anthologies  An Oratorio is a musical composition for voices and orchestra based on a religious text . They are usually performed without staging and include many lovely arias for intermediate and advanced voice students. Handel's Messiah is the most popular oratorio and the Watkins-Shaw is the definitive edition. It features cadenzas and alternate embellishments as well as several variations of the arias. (I personally like the 12/8 version of "Rejoice Greatly& and the soprano version of &Refiner's Fire&!) The Oratorio Anthology series offers a variety of arias for each voice type while the Music Minus One books also offer an accompaniment CD.

Vocal Methods - I began using the Vaccai in my studio after reading about so many professional singers who use it as a warm up. It's been a hit in my studio with students of all ages and levels. Each "lesson" covers a musical concept through little songs that are fun to sing. The Italian Metodo Practico comes with a CD with play along tracks and vocal models although the Schirmer is more affordable. Be aware that the Schirmer High Soprano book is in the same key as the Soprano Italian book.
