Book Reviews


“Being a professional singer and actor in mainstream musical theatre, I am continually searching for new ways to hone my craft. Focusing on battling the difficulties that sometimes present themselves when we are in practice with our skills has become an invaluable activity. Having tools to use when we feel that negative voice, or experience moments of doubt or challenge, to working freely in our craft, is a game changer.

Breathwork and Biohacking are such essential parts of being a vocal athlete. And The Mindfulness of Singing is undoubtedly an essential tool for anyone’s toolbox that is looking to feel more connected to their performance.”

- Daniel Koek
International Musical Theater Star

“I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking practical, fun tips on how to perform at your highest level while feeling and looking great. Hats off to Denise and Toni for putting this brilliant book together. I will find myself coming back to this book over and over again.”

- Jillian Speece

“The Mindfulness of Singing offers a systematic program for the singer to build a compass for their own health and well-being, which can last them throughout their career. It is both authoritative and charmingly anecdotal, and its methods apply to singers of all levels of study It is essentially a fun read written by two women who have had their own struggles and offer not only their own advice of how they have dealt with them, but an essential guide that can help the reader develop their own program for a life-long, healthy relationship between their hearts, minds, and voices.”

- Ryan de Ryke

“When the student is ready, the teacher appears. Ritter-Bernardini and Crowder’s book, The Mindfulness of Singing, is just that teacher. In their very pleasant and instructive manner, they give us thoughtful processes to help with the many factors that can affect our vocal performances. Yet, more importantly, they use singing as a metaphor for Life.”

- Michael D. Winters, M.D.
Gastroenterologist and Singer

“The Mindfulness of Singing thoughtfully addresses the singer’s interior journey through an approach that is both practical and personal. Denise and Toni offer a range of useful strategies to align mind, body and spirit, which will guide the reader to benefits for beyond the voice.”
