Excerpt from The Psychology of Singing: A Rational Method of Voice Culture

In spite of the general acceptance of the doc trines of Vocal Science, tone-production has not really been studied from the purely scientific standpoint. The use of the word science pre supposes the careful observation and study of all facts and phenomena bearing in any ways on the subject investigated. Viewed in this light, the scientific study of the voice is at once seen to be incomplete. True, the use of the voice is a muscular operation, and a knowledge of the mus onlar structure of the vocal organs is necessary to an understanding of the voice. But this knowl edge alone is not sufficient. Like every other voluntary muscular operation, tone-production is subject to the psychological laws of control and guidance. Psychology is therefore of equal im portance with anatomy and acoustics as an ele ment of Vocal Science.
