Everyday Voice Care: The Lifestyle Guide for Singers and Talkers
When I started teaching voice, I gave out little handouts to my students about basic wellness. After awhile it became a little book, then a bigger book as I entered the field of voice and speech therapy. It’s designed for browsing, problem-solving, and generally making life easier for both voice users and teachers, and it is widely used in performing arts programs and teacher-training as well as voice clinics.
