Practical hints, advice and information for training and trained performers who need to keep their singing voice in working trim. Not a how-to-sing book! The writing is clear and down-to-earth, spiced with a sense of humor. Witty illustrations, coupled with the author's warm voice, guide the reader through wide-ranging topics vital for singers, actors and other professional performance practitioners. What's the right song for me? Which microphone should I buy? How do I cope with asthma? Eating do's and don'ts for singers? Can I overcome my stage-fright? What to wear to an audition? How does air travel affect my voice? These pills won't harm my voice, will they? Pat Wilson addresses these practical questions, and many more, in the updated 2nd edition of this popular handbook. Well-indexed and reader-friendly, its professionally-focused information is accessible to students, performers and voice teachers alike.
