When boys' voices change form childhood treble to their adult voice it is important to treat them with particular care. Pushing the voice too hard could cause permanent damage, especially during the "transition", when it may not yet have "settled" into its true adult range and type (and this can sometimes take quite some time). Changing Voices contains a collection of songs to help the young singer through this period.

This collection features:

  • songs with a range between a fifth and an octave, in a choice of keys
  • wide-ranging repertoire covering classical, musical theater, traditional songs, and new commissions
  • background notes about the songs and their composers
  • pronunciation guides for singing in Italian, German, Spanish, and French
  • a description of the physiology of the changing voice
  • performing advice and technical guidance
