“The authors of this book explain the excellent singing techniques taught at RADA, which are vital for any actor or serious drama student. My singing training at RADA has seen me through musicals and Shakespeare from Miss Saigon to King Lear. ” ―Jonathan Pryce, Actor, Olivier and Tony Award Winner and RADA graduate “Everything an actor needs to know about singing is here. Jane and Philip are true experts and their book should be on every actor's bookshelf!” ―Gemma Arterton, Actress, Bafta Award Nominee and RADA graduate “The philosophy and rigor of the [RADA] program has been distilled into this highly practical book … Singing on Stage: An Actor’s Guide is an excellent guide for an acting student beginning their singing training. Additionally, as a voice teacher who works with actors and dancers making the transformation from single discipline to multidisciplinary performers, I found it to be an extremely useful resource in understanding and developing strategies for working with actors and in the importance of drawing out each individual actor/singer’s strengths.” – Voice and Speech Review Jane Streeton studied at the Royal College of Music and is a soprano soloist in opera and concert internationally.
