What Every Singer Needs to Know About the Body, Fourth Edition gives singers and teachers a Body Mapping resource—from anatomy and physiology to body awareness—that helps them discover and correct misconceptions about how their bodies are designed and how they function. This book provides detailed descriptions of the structures and movements necessary for healthy and efficient body awareness, balance, breathing, phonation, resonance, articulation, and gesture. Many voice books focus on the anatomical facts, but leave singers asking, "How can I apply this to my singing?" What Every Singer Needs to Know About the Body helps to answer that question, providing practical exercises and detailed illustrations. New to This Edition: * Updated and revised content throughout the text * Bulleted review sections for each chapter * New and updated links to recommended videos * Information on Biotensegrity and how it pertains to Body Mapping, along with helpful links to resources on the subject * An expanded glossary What Every Singer Needs to Know About the Body includes audio and video recordings of the exploratory exercises. This book provides the technical foundation for singers of all styles. The authors do not espouse a single method or attempt to teach singing techniques or styles. Rather, they describe the movements of singing with accuracy and detail so that singers may experiment on their own and communicate with each other in a common language.

Singing and Teaching Singing: A Holistic Approach to Classical Voice, Fourth Edition continues to be a beloved resource for singers and their teachers, speech-language pathologists, and laryngologists and an adopted text for instructors and students in voice, singing, and performing arts courses. Janice L. Chapman is able to draw on her experiences as a singer with some of the world's leading opera companies to present a teaching technique specifically focusing on voice in the areas of classical and opera singing. Interspersed with the concepts and components of Chapman's methods are vignettes from her life and career, animated by her conversational and vibrant style to guide (and entertain) the reader through the book in a step-by-step fashion. Now expand to include joint authorships with Dr. Ron Morris, the fourth edition draws on his experience as a speech and language therapist, audiologist, and singer, and widens the scope of the book to view current studio teaching practices through a scientific lens. The philosophy of teaching presented combines three main facets: Holistic, Physiological, and Incremental. The Holistic segment emphasizes that the act of singing involves the whole person (i.e., body, mind, spirit, emotion, and voice); the Physiological segment stresses anatomy, muscular function, and effects of muscular interactions so that students and teachers alike can understand and visualize the functional workings of the torso, larynx, and the vocal tract and their impact on good singing practices; and the Incremental section shows that the act of singing and the teaching of singing can be broken down into manageable components that have a natural hierarchy that eventually interact and interlock. This teaching model provides a framework to master one element at a time, with the resulting effect of a complete and integrated mastery of technique. Chapman recommends this framework for rehabilitative work with the dysfunctional singer, for working with the developing singer, and for the ongoing development and maintenance of the technically able professional singer. This highly-readable text includes contributions from renowned voice professionals, case studies, evidence-based and practical examples, exercises, and videos. New to the Fourth Edition: * New editor and co-author, Ron Morris, BSpThy (Hons); MMusStud (Voice), MSPAA, MASA (CC), PhD * The addition of completely new chapters on Laryngeal Registration, Vocal Acoustics and Acoustic Registration * Clarifications and exercises by Dr. Ron Morris on the use of the Accent Method breathing as a highly effective remedial and training technique * Expanded and updated information on Breathing and Support, Vocal Acoustics, Registers (Laryngeal and Acoustic), Teaching and Learning, Hearing and Singing, and Manual Therapy * Exercises have been significantly expanded and now are contained in a chapter of their own, which includes some information on lesson structure and practice * Significant updates reflect the current state of research and the latest advances in voice science and pedagogy have been referenced throughout * A new glossary has been added for ease of reading and clarification of pedagogical terms used in the text

Vocal Technique: A Physiologic Approach, Second Edition builds upon the premise firmly established in its first edition -- a singer who understands how his or her body functions when speaking and singing will necessarily be a better singer and teacher of singing. As such, it is the ideal text for voice classes and lessons at the university level as well as for voice lessons in the independent studio. Because it is so comprehensive, including anatomy, posture, breath management, physiology of tone production, achieving resonance, the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), classification of voices, health care for singers, a logical method for learning repertoire, stage deportment, and technology in the voice studio, it is also an excellent book for teaching vocal pedagogy. This text provides the essential information regarding anatomic and physiologic functions connected with the speaking and singing process so that singers will learn to develop their technique fully and thus maintain optimal technical skill and vocal health throughout a long singing and/or teaching career. The technical aspects of singing are discussed in detail, giving the singer the tools to apply this technique to a wide variety of repertoire and languages. The author provides a thorough introduction to the IPA and its application to the English, Italian, French, German, and Castilian Spanish languages. New to this edition: A new chapter on Science and Technology in the Voice Studio, including links to sites providing equipment and software for the voice studioUpdated illustrations detailing anatomy and physiologic functionEvery chapter has been updated to improve comprehensibility, especially the chapter covering the use of the IPASignificantly updated information on health and nutrition to reflect recent research in the fieldA list of recommended sources where singers and teachers can download free and/or inexpensive music for use in the voice class or studio
