Here we are again!
So I have decided to give you an Ultimate Gift Guide for the singers in your life.
(and if YOU are the singer in your life, this list is for you!)
Many of these links are affiliate links which means should you choose to purchase any of these items from this post, I’ll receive a tiny commission.
This book by New York City Voice Teacher, Claudia Friedlander, dicusses vocal anatomy and technique and how physical training can enhance your singing.
If you want to make an impression in your performance in musical theatre, this is the book you need. And even though it is specifically for musical theatre performers, there are some wonderful tips applicable to opera singers too.
Whereas the previous book was specifically for musical theatre, this book is all about acting in opera. Leon Major was the artistic director of the Maryland Opera Studio and also an acclaimed opera director at companies like New York City Opera.
This is a great book! Fear can be our greatest enemy and our greatest motivator. Susan Jeffers covers it all!
This is an excellent guide on all things music business and how to set yourself up as the entrepreneur you need to be.
This is an excellent little kit with three straws of different circumferences, a pipe cleaner, and a case. You can easily carry them with you anywhere you need to do your SOVT exercises.
When you are traveling and when you are in the cold weather, it’s important to keep your cords moist. This Deluxe Kit will give you everything you need to keep your voice healthy.
Every Diva needs a Piano Handbag! My favorite designer, Suzanne Vinnik of byVinnik, curates the most fabulous accessories and she has this bag in four colors. While you are on her site, check out the Diva-licious apparel.
My favorite jewlery designer is a former opera singer. Rebecca Carr of Belle Pietre Designs names each piece she creates after an operatic character. Peruse her website and you will find lots of gorgeous baubles.
If you are looking for a single song in a particular artist’s arrangement, this is the website. They have music in every genre for almost any instrumentation including choral music. And they have a monthly membership which allows you to read almost every piece of music directly on the site so you don’t have to purchase it.
There are a few apps out there that have accompaniment tracks that you can use for rehearsal and even performance purposes. PianoTrax focuses mostly on musical theatre and popular music but also has classical and other genres.
