"Ian was a thrilling teacher because he himself never ceased to be thrilled by the whole business. And the great thing about his method was that it worked. As you added notes at the top, your voice really did start to clarify lower down, and gradually you acquired the ability to do that thing for so long only dreamed of: hold a tune. It took time, but who cared, when going to see him was so much fun."
 
So wrote Clive in his tribute to his voice coach, the late Ian Adam,  who died on may the May the 10th. The whole of the tribute, together with Michael Coveney's Obituary proper, can be found in the Obituary columns of yesterday's issue The Guardian.

The man who taught the world to sing: a tribute to Ian Adam
 
By Ciar Byrne, Arts and Media Correspondent
Wednesday, 20 February 2008
 
Who could bring together Andrew and Julian Lloyd Webber, Helena Bonham Carter, Jeremy Irons, Clive James, Elaine Paige and Bonnie Langford to appear on the same stage?
 
The answer is the late singing coach to the stars Ian Adam, whose life and work is to be celebrated on Sunday in a gala performance in London's West End.
I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing, at the Theatre Royal, will raise money for the newly created Ian Adam Memorial Fund, "Singing for Breathing", to help patients with respiratory problems at the Royal Brompton Hospital, where Adam, who died last May, was treated. The show will tell the story of Adam's life from his boyhood in Scotland to becoming the most famous vocal coach in musical theatre.
 
Andrew and Julian Lloyd Webber will be playing together in public for only the second time, doing Andrew's "Pie Jesu". Andrew has loaned the theatre, part of his Really Useful Group, for the occasion.
 
Adam's last project was working with Bonham Carter to prepare her for her singing role in Sweeney Todd, which was directed by her husband, Tim Burton. She will introduce scenes from the film on the night....[read on]

Ian Adam was clearly a very gifted teacher, as anyone who heard Clive sing on the first Pete 'n' Clive tour, and then on the last one will confirm. The difference was astonishing.
