"This book represents a milestone in Australian studies of singing. It celebrates the work of an extensive, diverse yet expert group of researchers who share a passion for scholarly and professional engagement with the behaviour and development of singing. This is an important publication, not least because the multi-professional focus collectively provides a holistic view of why singing is a core and shared feature of our humanity." - Professor Graham Welch, Institute of Education University of London, President of International Society for Music Education
