Voice: Onstage and Off is a comprehensive guide to the process of building, mastering and fine-tuning the voice for performance. Every aspect of vocal work is covered, from the initial speech impulse and the creation of sound, right through to refining the final product in different types of performance. This highly adaptable course of study empowers performers of all levels to combine and evolve their onstage and offstage voices.

This 2nd edition is extensively illustrated and accompanied by an all-new interactive website, which includes:

  • Comprehensive teacher guides including sample syllabi, scheduling options, and ways of adapting to varying academic environments and teaching circumstances.
  • Recordings of all exercises and optional access to a recording of the entire text.
  • Clear and easy navigation by either chapter or voice "location".
  • Links to helpful websites for more in-depth study.
  • MSWord versions of the forms used throughout so students can fill them in and submit them electronically to their instructors.
  • Examples of voiceover demos and other demonstrations of specific voice related skills.

Four mentors — the voice chef, the voice coach, the voice shrink and the voice doctor — are on hand throughout the book and the website to ensure a holistic approach to voice training. The authors also provide an authoritative survey of US and UK vocal training methods, helping readers to make informed choices about their study.
