Your Voice Book Review:

Your Voice: the Basics features material previously published in Your Voice: an Inside View second edition(2012), along with significant new material. The book might be viewed as the condensed version of the original text. Since its original publication in 2004, Your Voice has become the most widely used primary textbook in voice pedagogy courses throughout the United States and Canada. But a great number of teachers and students have asked me to provide something that was a bit less dense--something that really focused on the basic elements of anatomy, physiology, vocal resonance, voice analysis, and vocal health.

Practical Vocal Acoustics Book Review:

Voice teachers have been addressing vocal acoustics in some manner for as long as there has been voice instruction. Now with sophisticated yet inexpensive sound analysis technology widely available, voice teachers see its potential value for the studio and want to understand the acoustics of vocal registration in order to apply these principals to their own as well as their students' singing. This book is a scientific yet accessible approach to the study and practical applications of vocal acoustics.--

Your Voice At Its Best Book Review:

A proven techbook to develop and master a more perfect voice as well as rehabilitate voices impaired by vocal abuse for singers, public speakers, executives, salesmen, ministers [and] announcers whose desire it is to create a more dynamic image. About the Author: In David Blair McClosky's fifty years of dedication to the vocal arts, he has studied them from every conceivable angle. A concert and opera singer himself--and descended from a long line of singers--he studied for six years at the New England Conservatory of Music and did postgraduate study in Berlin and Milan. He [was] a professor of voice at the Boston Conservatory of Music. In 1946, due to a personal experience described in "Your Voice at its Best," he became interested in voice therapy and for five years worked with Dr. Irl H. Blaisdell of Syracuse, New York, studying both singing students and patients with throat disorders. From 1952 until 1965, he was Clinical Voice Therapist at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and has treated private patients from all over the country, including the late President John F. Kennedy. He has spoken widely on the subject of voice therapy and in 1963, was invited to lecture about his work at the Academy of Music in Vienna.

The Diagnosis and Correction of Vocal Faults Book Review:

Popular for more than two decades among college voice teachers and their students, this outstanding, authoritative vocal pedagogy text is an invaluable manual. It thoroughly examines the vocal problems prospective voice teachers will encounter daily in the teaching studio and choral rehearsal. The author’s approach is a unique one, based in large part on diagnostic procedures similar to those used by doctors. As each vocal fault is presented, its identifying characteristics or symptoms are stated, its possible causes are discussed, and corrective procedures are suggested. An especially valuable feature is the book’s accompanying audio files (available here for download) that contains 14 male and female voice samples of the various vocal faults discussed in the text, enabling students to better identify basic characteristic sounds associated with each fault. Current and prospective choir directors and voice teachers who need help in improving the vocal sounds of choir members or students will find this practical guide-book to be an ever-present help in time of trouble.

Dynamics of the Singing Voice Book Review:

Every discipline tends to develop its own particular language and ways of communicating. This is true also about the various disciplines that talk about and describe the human voice - particularly as it relates to singing. The aim of this book is to bridge any gaps in communication, foster better understanding of the singing voice and encourage collaboration between those involved in performance, teaching, therapy and medicine. Because there is increasing interest in research in all these disciplines, creating a "common ground" for communication about the singing voice is essential for mutual understanding and for effective prevention and treatment of disorders in singers. One object for the artistic and scientific professions is to understand each other better by finding a vocabulary and terminology which they can share and use effectively. Difficulty in communication often arises when a singer or teacher of singing attempts to describe something sensory in nature by use of imagery and sign-language to non-singers, including the health and medical profes sions; and, in the same way, the use of obscure and sometimes frightening terminology by those in the medical sciences when offering explanations to singers. Teaching and simple language was and is needed from both sides. A number of advances are helping to create rapid change in bridging gaps in communication and in adding new information: 1. The formation of Associations for Performing Arts Medicine on a na tional and international scale are bringing new awareness to those who work with singers and other artists.

A Systematic Approach to Voice Book Review:

A Systematic Approach to Voice: The Art of Studio Application is a professional resource presenting a framework for the integration of science-informed principles of voice production and pedagogical application in the training of singers. Author Dr. Kari Ragan has spent years using this organizational template of the five voice systems—respiration, phonation, registration, articulation, and resonance—to identify technical challenges and design corrective vocal exercises in order to facilitate efficient singing. Each of the voice system chapters contains a brief overview of the mechanics as well as key points for teachers, or “teacher takeaways.” The book’s core offering is vocal exercises which, framed within a systematic approach, provide strategies for the art of studio application. The intent is an approach that leads to technically proficient singing working in service of great artistry. Key Features: * Over 85 vocal exercises for studio application framed within a systematic approach for both a CCM and classical aesthetic * Brief overview of the mechanics of each voice system and relevant “teacher takeaways” * Extensive discussion on semi-occluded vocal tract (SOVT) exercises * Introduction of several kinesthetic singing tools * Eight sample warm-up protocols designed for various levels of singers and both CCM and classical genres * Video demonstrations for each vocal exercise and sample warm-up
