A simple, step-by-step manual, written by an RSC voice coach, which offers everything that an actor needs to work on their voice. Suitable for actors at all levels, from students and young professionals to established and experienced actors. Drama teachers in schools and committed amateur actors who want to increase their vocal skills and understanding will also find it invaluable.

Includes sections on: * Preparation * Body Work * Breathing and Support * Breathing Into Sound: Supporting the Voice * Releasing the Sound * Filling out the Sound: Resonance * Extending the Sound: Range * Shaping the Sound: Articulation * Trouble-Shooting.

Each chapter begins with a brief introduction, then clearly and succinctly sets out a sequence of relevant exercises - accompanied by simple diagrams - ending with a summary of what we have learned.

Review:

'Brilliantly guides the actor using exercises and tools that can revolutionise the voice. It's a boon!' --Joseph Fiennes

'Barbara's work is simple and practical, encouraging each actor to be free and fluid with their own voice... Very inspiring' -- Emily Watson

'Barbara has a great understanding of the way that actors' anxieties can affect their voice. Her tone is calm, reassuring and good humoured.' --Niamh Cusack

Encourages rather than intimidates the budding student... Barbara Houseman is inspirational in her obvious enthusiasm for her subject. --Times Literary Supplement

It is very hard to work on the voice from a book but Barbara Houseman has found a way to make it approachable and wholly possible - she calls it 'a step-by-step guide for actors'. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in spending a few minutes each day finding their 'own' voice. --The British Voice Association

Synopsis:

This is a self-help manual for actors who want to train and develop their voice. Opening with advice on how to use the book and how to prepare our bodies, the author then takes us step-by-step through the constituent elements that make up the voice and the sounds we make with it. Each chapter starts with a brief introduction, then sets out the sequence of relevant exercises, accompanied by simple diagrams, and ends with a summary of what has been learned.
