The author presents a complete guide for discovering your vocal range and developing breath control, resonance, and vibrato. Includes chapters on the voice as an instrument including care of the voice, the relationship between one speaking and singing voice, and the cultivation of correct singing posture. You'll learn how to articulate and use the voice effectively in different styles of singing as well as how to sing with a microphone. A great number of vocal exercises and complete songs in various styles are presented, making this book an enjoyable learning experience as well as an effective tool for voice development.
