Make Your First Festival Show Rock! Are you playing your first green-field music festival or outdoor show soon? Not quite sure how it all works on the other side of the 'Artists Only' sign? Don't worry; help is at hand. My name is Andy Reynolds, a concert tour manager & live sound engineer. In this printed, paperback, mini-guide, I will give you my tips on making the most of your first festival slot. I have toured with bands and singers for more than 25 years, and work on loads of open-air, 'green-field' type festivals, such as Glastonbury, Roskilde, Coachella and Bonaroo, each summer. I know how bands can have a good show at a festival - and how they can mess up their chances by not being prepared for that all -important music festival slot. It is very important to your musical career that your festival appearances happen with no hitches, dramas or technical problems. Audiences go to music festivals to see and hear great bands. If they happen to catch you, and you are totally on fire, playing a great set and full of confidence, those people are likely to become fans. There is so much competition at each festival, and every band has that once chance to ignite the crowd, even if they are a well-known and successful act. None of the bands can afford to be ill-prepared or leave things to chance. But you need not worry about any of that - you will hit the stage looking like a pro after reading this book!

From the PREFACE:

Auguste Mathieu Panseron was born in Paris, April 26, 1796. He entered the Conservatoire at an early age, winning the Grand prix de Rome (1813). While in Italy, beside pursuing his theoretical work, he made an exhaustive study of the art of singing and the style of the old Italian masters. After travelling in Austria and Germany he returned to Paris and became a teacher. In 1826 he was made professor of Solfege at the Conservatoire; in 1831 professor of Vocalization, and in 1836 professor of Singing. This long experience made his text-books and his works on singing especially valuable. Able, learned and painstaking as a musician, he was kind and amiable as a man. Panseron died in Paris, July 29, 1859.

The A B C of Music was first published in this country in 1846, edited by Signor Felice Dorigo, a professor of Italian bel canto, and at that time a resident of Philadelphia. In this form the work has had a wide circulation. While elementary in character, it presupposed, however, some knowledge of music, and could hardly be followed without the aid of a teacher ; in fact it was intended primarily for the use of teachers.

In the preparation of this revised edition, the editor has sought to make the book comprehensible to beginners, even to those who are obliged to study without the help of a teacher. This in no way lessens the value of the work to the teacher. The revised and amplified work goes into a more detailed explanation of the various problems as they occur, thereby making many points clearer to the student, and the book more helpful to the teacher.

All of the original exercises, with trifling exceptions, have been retained, and many new exercises and scales added. The ABC of Music has indeed been practically rewritten to meet modern ideas and terminology.

The book is a Primer of Vocalization, not a complete course in singing. It gives the beginner all that is necessary in regard to elementary matters in music - the ABC; it explains much not contained in the ordinary vocal methods; and it supplies the absolutely necessary knowledge which should be mastered at the start, and which, if slighted, hampers the student's progress ever after.

For those who have mastered the ABC and wish to take the next step, we heartily recommend as a simple, sensible and compact book, Twelve Lessons in the Fundamentals of Voice Production by Arthur L. Manchester (Music Student's Library). For a progressive series of vocalizes the Preparatory Course to the Art of Vocalization by Eduardo Marzo, may well follow. This course may be had for Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone or Bass voices.

In his revision of an eminent man's work the editor has aimed to meet the needs of the beginner in music today, and to meet them as Panseron would were he writing now.
