Unique ‘SINGING’ hardback - Where Science meets Common sense.

Internationally renowned vocal specialist and long-term Professor of Singing at London’s Royal Academy of Music, Ross Campbell, has connected the dots across all genres and styles of music, to produce a singing world-first: a groundbreaking, new, holistic approach to vocal-training, uniting multiple singing techniques with the latest in sound anatomy and physiology.

Singing – An Extensive Handbook For All Singers And Their Teachers for the first time scientifically demystifies vocal health and training, combining instruction and research to improve all types of singing. Presented in a highly accessible format, this expertly written vocal study guide, empowers and challenges singers of all disciplines, from the trained and semi-trained professional, to the ardent ‘soprano-in-the-shower’.

As the title of the glossy 226-page singers’ bible suggests, the book has been researched and written to champion singers and their teachers alike, combining multiple singing techniques with science and instruction, something never before done in visual-led, written vocal training.

Following extensive research and his own 35-year old expertise, the book has been compiled by singing maestro Ross Campbell, whose been a Professor of Singing at the Royal Academy of Music since 1999, and alongside this, he was Head of Singing and Music at the Guildford School of Acting for many years, whose alumni include, Michael Ball, Bill Nighy and Ruth Henshall.

Campbell taught “Strictly Come Dancing,” winner Tom Chambers, as well as other West End Stars throughout his teaching career, and now brings his expertise to all with this newly released hardback. He won the prestigious MIA Award for “Best Classical Publication 2009,” for his work on the ABRSM Songbooks, and the release of this glossy, detailed training book represents his first original work.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no one method which fits all.”

Ross Campbell.

With yet another TV program debuting recently involving members of the public “singing” and being judged by celebs; the voice and singing, has clearly captivated the nation’s attention – but nowadays are good singing techniques really being taught? In this new singers’ guide, Campbell has addressed ALL possible technical, social and emotional problems which can affect the voice.

This highly skilled Professor of Singing at the Royal Academy of Music, argues today’s high-profile singers cancelling sell-out stadium shows due to vocal exhaustion, (e.g. Adele in 2017 and her closing London night), is due to previous teaching and guidance that either has been misguided or incomplete.

“Singing – An Extensive Handbook For All Singers And Their Teachers,” addresses this and numerous facets of vocal health and training, combining essential scientific research with numerous singing methods and influences to form a complete holistic approach.

Though there are some books in the singing field, these focus on just one single method of teaching. No-one else has united and examined multiple methods of best practice singing techniques until now.

Combating this ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach and drawing on his 35 years’ experience of performance, research and scientific knowledge, Campbell takes a holistic approach to the voice and training saying, “Contrary to popular belief there is no one method which fits all.”

Campbell is greatly excited at enabling singers of all disciplines to master their craft, while simultaneously supporting vocal teachers with the latest know-how to help them achieve this.

He said as he signed a select number of copies, “This glossy study-guide for singers of all types is a gamechanger for those interested in the singing voice, it’ll nurture the fledgling vocalist, adding to the repertoire of the pro.”

“Never before has science and instruction been combined to empower a new generation of singers,” he continued.”

“Perhaps singers cancelling shows due to vocal damage will soon be a thing of the past? Now that would be a song worth singing!”

Significant time has been spent on the practical design of the book to help students of all disciplines. It comes in both hardback, and eBook versions, both of which have been professionally designed to maximize the advantages of each type. The book includes strikingly colourful diagrams, musical exercises and is written in simple language accessible to all, organized into ten colour coded sections.

Thought has even been given to its size and type. It’s currently printed to order as a 10” x 7” hardback, sized thus so it can stand easily on singing teachers pianos, or music stands.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
