Vocal Techniques for the Young Singer
By Henry Leck

The purpose of the DVD is to demonstrate basic vocal techniques taught by Leck in the choral setting. It includes mental focus, breathing, posture and vowel formation exercises.

The teaching on this DVD is unique in its approach to the use of the primary learning anchors: aural, visual, kinesthetic: movement and physical.
