Comment: The voice is definitely developing. It now has power, depth, and fullness. It is a common occurrence that a student is astonished at the types of tonal qualities he is capable of making. One wonders if this student knew he could make such sounds.

Quote: For the singer, objective judgments are of lesser importance than those which are subjective. Training must begin, therefore, with an effort to improve and perfect subjective concepts. In this program the student must be taught what to listen for; then, when he becomes capable of making right value judgments among aural phenomena and functional laws, both objective and subjective judgments will have been brought into agreement. The questions that arise are: what influences have been at work in the development of conceptual attitudes, and what does one learn to listen for? (Voice: Psyche and Soma)
