The Use and Training of the Human Voice: A Bio-Dynamic Approach to Vocal Life Reviews
It's as good as its reputation, but you do need to know that it's got a lot of technical language, and is quite dry and authoritarian. If you're extremely serious about voice work, it's invaluable.
This is a pivotal book for anyone interested in improving communication. With a little thought, the techniques described in this book can be used for many different purposes: relaxation, energizing, accent reduction, helping people with speech disorders speak more clearly...and, of course, with the best voice. Can't wait for a new edition!
Simply the best voice training available!
This book, with the aid of a certified [or nearly certified] instructor helps the actor/speaker project without ruining their voice. It teaches them how to care for their instrument, that is to say their body.
It's an alright book. Only bought it because I needed it for my class.
BBD is so sweet writing a note and has SUPER FAST delivery.
I first became acquainted with Arthur Lessac's work in the 1970's when I was in Graduate School. Since then, his Approach to Voice and Body Training has been the mainstay of my professional and personal life. His new book (the third version) has been written in such a way that complements the older version, yet takes us on a training journey that is wholistically and organically fresh and new. I enjoy teaching from this book, and my students enjoy learning from it!
