This series was designed to supplement traditional vocal instruction and works perfectly as preparatory literature for The First Book of Solos and The First Book of Solos Part II. Each piece is in English and has a limited vocal range as well as a piano accompaniment that is playable by a student pianist. The pieces include art songs, folksongs, humorous songs, and suitable vintage popular songs and are all appropriate for contest solos.

  • October 02, 2008 Great book for young singers

    This book really introduces great classical pieces to young singers. The pieces are easy enough to be sung by a beginner, but they have enough challenge to keep them interesting.
