THE JOURNAL OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF TEACHERS OF SINGING
"Born to Sing" video takes a `hands-on', `lead by example' approach via books, video and audio cassettes...touches all aspects of singing from basic breathing to advanced pop/rock ornamentation...the authors explain, demonstrate and have you exercise with them...teachers might find the Born to Sing series especially helpful as a guide to their own teaching...and recommend it to their students as an adjunct to studio work."
ROBERT EDWIN, JOURNAL OF SINGING, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF TEACHERS OF SINGING
"The guide vocals by Ms. Howard are worth the price of admission alone. She is a vocal chameleon who can authentically capture a multitude of singing styles from operatic to rock. She gives students a doorway into each style and then encourages them to try it on their own, first in slow motion, then up to speed.. Along with singer/teacher Howard Austin, they take the time to demonstrate and explain many of the technical and artistic details each style requires."
JOHN DEMAIN, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, MADISON SYMPHONY AND OPERA AND CONDUCTOR FOR PLACIDO DOMINGO
"...for the experienced professional as well as the neophyte...can remedy vocal problems step-by step...Born to Sing could become to the study of singing what Berlitz has become to the study of languages."

"I retrieved your video, "Sing Like a Pro" and reviewed it carefully. You have managed to convert an enormous scope into a few, well-chosen examples and recommendations. I have not seen a similar condensed presentation of a complex and multi-dimensional subject....I congratulate you on your success in producing an interesting, attractive and instructional video which has given me much food for thought. You have clarified some difficult maneuvers and I was particularly impressed by your fascinating sequence on the vibrato. Thank you for the opportunity of reviewing this exciting teaching tool."
