ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
David Jones is an internationally known vocal pedagogue who teaches the Swedish-Italian School of Voice Training in New York, London, Paris, Geneva, Berlin, and San Francisco. He studied with the famous vocal teacher Alan Lindquest who studied this school of training in Stockholm in 1938 and 1939. Lindquest passed on his knowledge about this school of training that he received from Joseph Hislop, teacher of Jussi Bjoerling, and Ingebjart Isene, teacher of Kirsten Flagstad.

David Jones has taught singers in every style from Rock to Pop to Opera. In the Classical genre, Maestro Jones has taught singers who perform in major concert halls and opera houses internationlly including the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Philharmonie Hall in Berlin, Avery Fischer and Alice Tully Halls at Lincoln Center in New York, the Metropolitan Opera, the San Francisco Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera, the Berlin Staatsoper, Vienna Staatsoper, Covent Garden Opera House, Nederlandse Operastichting in Amsterdam, the Glyndebourne Opera Festival, Hamburg Opera, Zuruck Opera and La Scala.

Today, David Jones teaches the Swedish-Italian School internationlly and travels extensively teaching professional singers and teachers about a vocal technique that is so healthy that it has been known to assist in healing vocal damage. Maestro Jones' web site, www.voiceteacher.com offers free information on vocal training including articles and exercises. He is presently working on a Vocal Pedagogy book and DVD.

Kerry Politzer

Terrific
This 2-CD set is very educational and inspiring.

Marsha Sims

Great Material for Daily Use
I am delighted with David Jones' Lessons CD. It is perfect material to warm up and practice with on a daily basis. His well-produced, mellifluous voice is a delight to work with and shows that he practices what he teaches. It is a great reference source to find answers to almost all questions that you may have about singing. I highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about learning to sing well!

Heather Martin

Amazing Results
I have been taking voice lessons for 2 years. My voice teacher is excellent, but there were some concepts I just couldn't get. I ordered the CD's after reading Maestro Jones's articles on his website. After 30 minutes of practice I was able to clear up much of the breathiness in my tone and I had much more flexibility and increased range. My voice teacher was very impressed with the drastic improvement in my voice. Very straightforward and easy to understand. I can't say enough how happy I am. Thank you so much. I feel like I can fulfill my singing dreams.

Cathy Pope / London

Extraordinary Training!!!!!
David Jones' understanding of singers and vocal technique is peerless. It is based so securely and given humbly and what is more it works beautifully. This is very, very rare in our profession. I would encourage anyone sincerely interested in finding answers to vocal problems to hear what he has to say on this CD.

Lorene Phillips / Soprano / Voice Teacher

Exceptional training for all styles of singing!!!
David Jones’ Introductory Lesson is full of accurate and practical vocal concepts that will keep singers performing for years to come. His explanations and vocalizations benefit singers and teachers at all levels by providing concise narratives that synthesize his mastery of vocal pedagogy and technical prowess. If you are serious about being a professional singer or teacher, you must study the Swedish-American school concepts that David presents. I might dare to say, if you master the teachings and vocal concepts contained in an "Introductory Lesson with David Jones", you can skip conservatory!

Marie McMarrow / Voice Teacher / Singer

Two Thumbs UP!!!
David Jones' CD is a comprehensive yet understandable collection of vocal concepts gathered for both teacher and student to understand easily. Including vocalization of both male and female voice, it covers the core of heatlhy concepts that produced such singers as Flagstad and Bjoerling. My students can review this recording before their lessons and be ahead of the game in their process. In addition, they will build the dicipline needed to become professional singers. I strongly recommend this CD for both teachers and students who want a clear understanding of the Swedish/Italian School.

Gus Goldberger / Attorney / Cantor

Simply THE best!!!
As a professional cantor who has been struggling with my singing voice for many years I now have a new perspective on singing which no voice teacher (except my Father who was a bel canto concert singer in Denmark and Montreal many years ago when I could not appreciate his wisdom) has explained in a clear straight forward way as Maestro Jones presents it in his new CD. For example, no teacher focused on my lack of singing in the mask, and the need to lower the larynx, etc. to avoid damaging the vocal cords. While I have been told about the "ng" and humming exercises, it was never explained in real terms to make it meaningful. When I listen to the CD, Jones demonstrates the difference and boy is there a difference. At least I have a new focus and will be working on it until I have the pleasure of meeting him in person to have him assess my progress. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who struggles with the voice in one fashion or another.

A Road to Vocal Health!
I have been reading David Jones' vocal articles for years and finally got up the courage to leave a voice teacher and a chorus that were contributing to my poor vocal health.
I purchased the CD set to use in the interim until I begin lessons with my new coach. The CD has been very helpful to me and I use the warm-ups on a daily basis. I have learned so much about how the whole body works to produce a beautiful sound.
I highly recommend it. Even my husband has started using it to correct his breathing problems.

Geoff Wilson / Australia

A Voice Building Tool:
I am 59 years old, and – although not a professional singer – I have had quite a bit of previous tuition and experience as a singer. I also have several instructional tapes and books from various vocal coaches, all of which were helpful.
Never the less, like many other singers I suppose, I have had ongoing difficulties in certain areas. While I have not had David Jones’ instructional CDs very long, my ongoing practice with the exercises has helped overcome those vocal difficulties.
It is a great thing that a vocal coach of David Jones’ standing should be prepared to put together an instructional set of CDs to help singers ranging from professionals to beginners.

Esther Simkin / Voice Teacher / Performer

A Vocal Pedagogy Course on CD! Wonderful!
I am an active dramatic coloratura and voice teacher and I have been following Mr. Jones' work for the past couple of years and I cannot say enough about how thorough and highly effective this technique is and what a boon this 2-CD set is for teachers and singers. This collection is worth its weight in gold and the result of both a respect and a passion for the art of beautiful singing.
