What Every Singer Should Know
by Millie Ryan
Publisher: Franklin Publishing 1910
This book is not for the purpose of instruction in singing, as singing is an art which cannot be taught from book or correspondence. I aim through the medium of my book to have a "heart-to-heart" talk with the beginner, and with those who contemplate the study of voice culture. I wish to give all the valuable "hints" and "helps" that it has taken years of experience to gather, covering all the questions that are absolutely necessary to know, making it brief, simple and understandable.

How does music actually work? We derive from first principles of Physics and Computation the following fundamental phenomena of music: the Major Scale, the Standard Chord Dictionary, and the difference in feeling between the Major and Minor Triads.
by Luisa Tetrazzini, Enrico Caruso - Elegant Ebooks
Caruso was one of the world's most loved male singers and Tetrazzini was an incredible Italian soprano. These pieces on the art of singing are a must for anyone seriously interested in singing. A valuable source of knowledge for future musicians.
