Freeing the Voice

A training guide for singing and speaking

Original Title

Libérer sa voix Une méthode efficace pour entraîner sa voix parlée et chantée

Get the most out of your voice and improve every aspect of your communication.

A practical guide for anyone wishing to improve his or her singing or speaking voice, this book presents a short theoretical overview of the anatomy of the voice, followed by advice on vocal hygiene, as well as a complete array of exercises for breathing, muscle strengthening, diction, interpretation and vocalization. The fruit of thirty-three years of teaching voice to artists, broadcasters, lecturers, commentators, teachers and amateurs, this valuable tool is designed for both beginners and experienced professionals.
Working on our singing or speaking voice enables us to project better, with better diction and more musicality. The voice is capable of transmitting the deepest emotions, so getting to know our voice more intimately involves becoming aware of the emotions underlying what we say. Working on our voice is thus about learning to communicate in a more nuanced way with others, both in our choice of words and through rhythm and register.
