Joan Boytim has selected some of the easisest songs in English from The First Book of Solos series and transposed them for a different voice type for many of the selections in Introduction to Art Song, making the songs available to more students. Additionally, other suitable songs, not found in other Boytim collections, have been included. Each voice type has a unique song list. These books may be used by students in traditional voice lessons or by voice classes. Online audio accompaniments are accessible with code in book.
