Singers' and Choral Directors' Bible

Resources for the classical singer, including how to find repertoire, translations, pronunciations, and pedagogical works. Choral music resources also are included.



 “Don’t Panic”, written in large friendly letters as on The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.


This reference guide is designed to help you brainstorm ways to research and learn about vocal studies, vocal performance, vocal pedagogy, and opera studies. It will help you access resources in various formats that support learning and research in your classes, studios, and general interest.

The specific materials illustrated in this LibGuide are designed to increase awareness of the various kinds and types of resources available to aid in vocal studies mastery and do not constitute an exhaustive list. 

They have been selected as a representative sampling designed to help get you started in your lesson and performance preparation and background research.

For more directed help, reach out to the Performing and Visual Arts Librarian to set up a time to talk through your topic!
