On the Art of Singing

Richard Miller

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the transcript of a keynote address delivered by the author at the National Convention of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on July 3, 1983. The author talks about the NATS as an organization known for opening windows to a broad spectrum of vocal knowledge, claiming that most of the healthy breezes that blow through vocal pedagogy today have been germinated within the NATS by openness on the part of its members to the exchange of information. He also reflects on how singers and teachers of singing sometimes spend their energies on peripheral considerations about the singing art instead of being centered on the acquisition of technical skills that allow artistic communication. He also describes different types of voice teachers who are seated behind closed windows in the vocal pedagogy room.

Keywords:   singing, National Association of Teachers of Singing, vocal pedagogy, singer, technical skills, artistic communication, voice teacher
