Have you ever heard your voice played back on a tape recorder? The first time you heard it, you probably said, “That's not me.” The following thought was probably, “Do I sound like that when I talk?”And, the third silent thought was,“Better do something about it quick!”But, what to do? How do you start improving your voice? The best solution is to take lessons from a voice teacher. This, however, costs money and takes time, both precious commodities. If your career is in the acting profession, this is the only solution. But, if you are not directly connected with the entertainment world, you will not want to go to such lengthy measures. Having a good speaking voice is an asset in any profession, and nothing is more revealing about your personality than your voice. What does the voice do? It reveals all the emotions inherent in man: anger, frustration,happiness, contentment, etc. Actually, the impression you make on other people is not done with words, but how you speak them. The most important word in the human language today is “communication.”Without it, enemies are made, friendships broken, business lost. When the phone was invented, the bulk of communications was taken from the hands and given to the voice. Yet, while children are taught their grammar and ABC's in school, the art of elocution is ignored. Now, you have reached a point in your life when you realize something is missing, and, being a mature person, you naturally want to correct this lack.“Do it yourself”has become the national password, so your problem is finding a book that is easily understood, practical, and interesting. Look no further, you are holding it in your hands. This book was written by a woman who has made her living by properly using her voice. Marjorie Hellier, actress, singer, lecturer and tutor with twenty-five years' experience in the handling of voices of every age and type, vividly describes her individual (and successful) approach to the art of voice control.

With her simple instructions and illustrations, it will take only a short time for you to notice a remarkable change in the quality of your voice.

Every life has a soundtrack. All you have to do is listen. Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter’s life. There’s the melody that reminds her of the summer she spent rubbing baby oil on her stomach in pursuit of the perfect tan. A dance beat that makes her think of using a fake ID to slip into a nightclub. A dirge that marked the years she spent trying to get pregnant. For better or for worse, music is the language of memory. It is also the language of love. In the aftermath of a series of personal tragedies, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. When an unexpected friendship slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people—even those she loves and trusts most—don’t want that to happen. Sing You Home is about identity, love, marriage, and parenthood. It’s about people wanting to do the right thing for the greater good, even as they work to fulfill their own personal desires and dreams. And it’s about what happens when the outside world brutally calls into question the very thing closest to our hearts: family.

The chapters of this book are nothing but mirrors for seeing your ''self'' from different angles. And though the journey we are about to embark on is an inner one, it will draw upon every aspect of your life. The only requirement asked of you is the willingness to honestly look at yourself in the most natural, intuitive manner. Remember, if we are seeking the root of ''self,'' what we are actually seeking is you. As you read through these pages, you will find that you know much more than you thought you did about some very deep subjects. The fact is, you already know how to find yourself; you have just gotten distracted and disoriented. Once refocused, you will realize that you not only have the ability to find yourself, you have the ability to free yourself. Whether you choose to do so or not is entirely up to you. But upon completion of your journey through these chapters, there will be no more confusion, no more lack of empowerment, and no more blaming others. You will know exactly what must be done. And should you choose to devote yourself to the ongoing journey of self-realization, you will develop a tremendous sense of respect for who you really are. It is only then that you will come to appreciate the full depth of meaning in the advice: ''This above all: to thine own self be true.'' ---- Introduction

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.
