Vocalizing With Ease

This self-help guide was developed to provide basic information to lay-persons about vocal physiology, vocal health, and vocal "personality", as well as a step-by-step program to optimize voice production. It can be used in conjunction with a structured voice therapy program, or for home study. Based on current understanding of vocal physiology, the physical program includes detailed descriptions and original cartoons demonstrating exercises to: improve posture; increase relaxation and flexibility of speech articulators; coordinate speech breathing and phonation; enhance resonance effects; use meaningful intonation; and improve phrasing patterns. In the appendix, the program is summarized in twelve removable wall posters that can be used in group therapy programs or for home practice. It is ideal for teachers, singers, sales representatives, public relations personnel, counselors, and other individuals who rely on their voices to conduct their daily work routines, or who need basic information for vocal performance.
