Format: Paperback
This book is a must for teachers and students of voice alike. Masterfully written, it is even more accessible than Linklater's earlier (blue cover) edition of this ground-breaking work. The exercises are beautifully outlined, creating a developmental journey through the whole voice. Although it is primarily aimed at voice training for actors and performers, it will be of benefit to anyone interested in freeing their natural voice. Linklater is an internationally recognised master teacher and this book is an absolute gem of a work.

well organised, very easy to follow, clear, love the fact that there is a timetable to follow. although it is a tough process. not sure i could have gained as much from it if i hadnt been taking a kristin linklater class. great book, very influenced by art, meditation ... nice

Format: Paperback
Freeing the Natural Voice is a thorough, simple and inspired book and practical guide to the exploration of the human voice. There are no tricks, shortcuts, nor anything superficial about the way in which it takes your through a journey from body to breath to sound and finally articulation, thought, feelings and language. A must buy for anyone serious about exploring their spoken voice!

This is a practical and authoritative book to help develop delivery of speech. I am dyslexic and read in church from time to time and therefore have to prepare a reading with care, if possible starting a week beforehand. Over the years I have come to realise that the way in which words, phrases, sentences are delivered by the voice can have a dramatic affect on meaning for the listener. I want to take this a step further on my own and, although a long term process as the book explains, I am encouraged to explore the potential of my own voice and believe I can do this with the help of the very thorough and analytic approach of this book and the practical exercises it presents to the reader.

5 star rating for this marvelous book, I keep returning to it, every aspect of freeing one's voice is in it. Almost overwhelming, every aspect of voice and body training is in it. Highly recommendable.

A super book, really good relaxation techniques. This is a long term investment in your body and your voice. Best to have a friend willing to complete the exercises with you...
