Welcome to

The Art of Singing

...a beloved book about the psychology of performance and self-expression by Jennifer Hamady. A renowned coach and workshop facilitator, Jennifer explores how we all– musicians and non-musicians alike– allow fear, preconceived notions, poor learning habits, and unhealthy mindsets to get in the way of our musical and personal performance and potential.

"An incredible book... I've read it twice!"

Daniel Levitin

"In Jennifer Hamady's extremely thoughtful and commendably helpful how-to guide, she writes... with indisputable common sense, about singing from a different, if not entirely radical, perspective."
Back Stage

"It's The Artist's Way, The Four Agreements, and Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain all rolled into one. A new book, author, and force to be reckoned with."
Don Davis, Variety

"I LOVE IT!  I'm currently in Mamma Mia on Broadway and your book is changing the way I work. Thank you for writing something so brilliant!"
Monica Kapoor

"Thank you for writing this book. My heart is leaping with joy that there are other people out there thinking like this. It has given me a sense of belonging and direction for my teaching, and has been a huge help to my students."
Liz Johnson
Professor of Voice Vanderbilt University

"She's written the singer's version of 'The Secret'. Oprah would be proud!"
Clair Reilly-Roe
Singer/Songwriter, NYC

"I came to Jennifer to rediscover how to sing. What she helped me find was my voice. There is no greater gift. This book should be on everyone's list of must-reads."
Charles Day, The Lookinglass Consultancy

"Words cannot express how much your book has done for me as a singer and as an aspiring music educator. Thank you..."
Mimi Parroco
New York University

"Jennifer's book simply confirms her abilities in discerning the fundamentals of life. Powerfully insightful, her treatment of fear not only has immediate application but revolutionary impact, as she has identified the core problems that undermine the full performance of so many people. There is no doubt in my mind that the book will have enormous positive impact on a wide cross section of people."
Dr. Amii-Omara Ottunu
Chair, UNESCO Institute
