This book teaches non-classical or pop-style singers how to pronounce lyrics in American English. Its primary audience is singers with English as a second language, but all singers of pop music, and indeed anyone wishing to improve their vocal technique, can benefit from this book. Through the use of the International Phonetic Alphabet, which assigns a specific symbol to each consonant and vowel sound, singers can immediately produce American sounds devoid of any local accents. Each sound is taught through a list of several practice words, photographs of mouth positions, and examples on the accompanying CD.
