"What is said in these pages takes the place of what should proceed from the mouth of the teacher." —Hermann Klein Hermann Klein was a student of the legendary voice teacher Manuel García in London and came to New York City in 1901 to teach his historic method. Before returning to England eight years later, he wrote an 84-page singing manual utilising the new technology of the gramophone that was subsequently lost for more than a century. In a well-documented introduction, the author recounts how he discovered Klein's manual hidden in plain sight, its history and significance for modern students and teachers of singing, and addresses García's controversial teaching of voice placement. A rare manuscript that illuminates the principles of the Old Italian School of Singing, it was published for four voice types. This edition is the tenor version. Please note this book does not contain the tenor recordings which have not been found after a decade of searching. However, exceedingly rare original gramophone recordings for contralto Janet Spencer were discovered after publication and can be heard at SoundCloud and Youtube.

Daniel James Shigo is a voice teacher, professional bass-baritone, and scholar of historical vocal pedagogy.Review:
"This remarkable book, with an introduction by New York voice teacher Daniel James Shigo, makes available for general use and study the precepts of the vocal method developed and perfected by Manuel Garcia, Jr. (1805-1906), son of a tenor who had sung Don Ottavio during Mozart's lifetime and created the role of Almaviva in Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia. This is a valuable reissue of a major course of vocal study by a pupil of one of the most famous teachers of all time, and the price is ridiculously cheap." --Lynn René Bayley, Fanfare Magazine, March/April 2014
"The introduction to this pedagogic treatise reads like a detective novel. Those interested in historical vocal pedagogy will find this volume fascinating, and all serious students of voice will benefit from the succinct and straight-forward instruction offered by Klein." --Debra Greschner, The Journal of Singing, January/February 2015.
"This is much more than just a piece of vocal archeology. It takes the art of teaching back to foundational elements of voice training: no acoustic analysis, airflow studies, no closed quotients--only simple concepts and effective exercises that are tried and true, developed through decades of trial and error and proven over scores of years in studios all over the world. Would that our voice teaching profession take heed and return to simple things as presented in this little book." --Stephen F. Austin, VOICEPrints--The Official Journal of the New York Singing Teachers Association
