Singing with Mind, Body, and Soul: A Practical Guide for Singers and Teachers of Singing
Singing with Mind, Body, and Soul is unique in that it truly is a practical guide for voice teachers, singers, and choral conductors alike. It outlines in a clear and straightforward way the fundamentals of a healthy vocal technique. Step-by-step tools and exercises are used to achieve a solid, healthy vocal production.
Included in each chapter are specific exercises for increasing kinesthetic awareness while singing. The tools, used together with the exercises, retrain the muscles and allow the vocal mechanism to release tension, at the same time keeping energy and vitality in the voice.
Singing with Mind, Body, and Soul offers to both singer and teacher a comprehensive guide for beautiful, healthy, soulful singing.
