The classic voice-training for actors, teachers of voice and anyone interested in vocal expression - by a pre-eminent voice teacher, actor and director. Fully revised and expanded edition. Linklater’s approach is to liberate the voice you have rather than apply vocal techniques from the outside. Her basic assumption is that everyone possesses a voice capable of expressing whatever emotion, mood or thought he/she experiences.
“a radical breakaway from the old formal methods... an invaluable new resource... essential”
Educational Theatre Journal
“the best and only work of its kind for vocal training”
Education Theatre News
“This book is a classic. Beyond the detailed technical expertise it contains, it resonates, in the ample sense of the word, with anyone slightly aware of the relation between mind and body. I only wish I would be disciplined enough to follow its teachings without fail. I know I would find and liberate whatever my natural voice is.”
