Classical singing training is no longer relevant for the theatre performer today. So how does an actor train his singing voice?
Now in its second edition, this practical handbook takes the reader through a step-by-step training programme relevant to the modern singing actor and dancer. A variety of contemporary voice qualities including belting and twang are explained, with exercises for each topic. This new edition has been revised throughout and includes an audio CD of voice exercises.
