Comments from Instructors


Hi Cheri! I finished my first semester in May, using your lyric diction materials. I had the challenge of teaching IPA of five languages (Italian, German, French, Latin, and English) in one semester. It was a difficult challenge, however, your text books made the process easy for me to teach and simple for the students to learn. I saw amazing results in my students. I love how the text puts most of the work on the student and turns the classroom into a lab setting. I also received positive feedback from the students regarding your integration of English IPA throughout the book. This is a concept that I found unique and it worked well in my class. Thank you for all of your help and advice as I prepared to teach my class! ~ Emily Douglas, Adjunct Professor of Voice, Spring Arbor University, 06/12/18
