Abstract

A review of the extant vocal literature containing the writings of Tosi, Mancini, and Garcí­a, shows that the topic of vocal registration appeared to be at the core of their training procedures. The essence of their vocal instruction centered around how the registers coordinated, separated, and developed to form the functional basis of a sound technique. However, of all the topics that encompass historical pedagogy, none will confound the diligent voice teacher more than the topic of vocal registers. For this reason, contemporary pedagogy has developed certain methodologies that appear to be at odds with the historical approach to training the vocal registers. Are these approaches so different, or is there common ground to be reached between the old masters and contemporary voice teachers?
