This DVD, presented by NYC studio owner and Queens College staff member Andres Andrade, is a personal half-hour lesson on the basics of singing which you can watch and learn from over and over again. The DVD covers the parts of your (vocal) instrument; posture; breathing exercises; and your first vocal exercises (separate for men and women, accompanied on piano and demonstrated by Andrade's students.) The booklet includes clear diagrams and photos, as well as written vocal exercises, reinforcing all concepts on the DVD. Absolute Beginners: Voice DVD can be used in conjunction with the book + CD (pictured below) which offers additional exercises and a wealth of repertoire, as well as recorded piano accompaniments and access to online accompaniments in different keys. 28-minute DVD with 16-page booklet.
