Sergius Kagen (1909-1964) was a member of the faculty of the Juilliard School of Music and had this to say regarding the studying of singing:
In my experience, I have become aware of the fact that too many young people who hope to become professional singers believe too much in and expect too much from the processes of study. . . . [Study] cannot be expected to endow the student with faculties he may not possess by nature.
Singing Voice provides detailed information, history and links about the human voice, opera and the art of singing.
While a lot of knowledge has been gained over the centuries regarding singing, there is much that still remains uncertain and there are many differences of opinion among singing teachers regarding terminology and correct vocal technique.
It is hoped that the information found here may answer some of the many questions singers often have and also form the basis of an ongoing dialogue between singers, teachers, and voice scientists.
