A Cappella Arias

For unaccompanied voice.


Duration: 0.5-2 minutes each.

A book of arias sung without accompaniment. They can be sung anytime, anywhere for any occasion. The only preparation needed is practice. I started writing these arias in a time when I was struggling to find an accompanist to perform with me. Ifever I was at an open mic, I could just jump onstage and sing these songs. I'm still writing new songs to add to this collection. I hope to publish several volumes of this collection and turn a cappella singing into a standard practice for singers.
