NOTES
A.1everal of these methods may be used in combination.
B.Mouth wave must be paramount to the whad wave.
C.There must be enough Front head.This more often than I realize is
a cause of trouble and of inadequate tone.
D.'Thy not vowel resonance in I,II,~II,IV,V?Why in the backcftucors a
mostly so long as you do not make any one of them selective?
E.Stanley's method better for women than men-on account of falsetto.
F.I am teaching French and Italian methods combined.Head and mouth
waves co-mbined.
G. Are II and III only 5 5 in vowel energy?Try In a large auditorium to
sing with and without head resonance.
H.Bil1 Nettles says he uses now only Organic method with Kee-N e-a;ah-Ah,
The Organic method allows the vowel to select Its own wesonator,if
that were possible.It does not oppose front mouth as one factor.
