Book Description

1 Sep 1989
Althought there are numerous books dealing with the science and acoustics of speech, there are relatively few that deal with the singing voice as distinct from the speaking voice. Now, Johan Sundberg's "The Science of the Singing Voice"--illustrated with over a hundred instructive and significant diagrams and drawings--thoroughly describes the structure and functions of the vocal organs in singing, from the aerodynamics of respiration through the dynamics of articulation.

The necessary information for Each voice teacher in one book. Sometimes difficult to understand the terms of the physics world, because I studied physics at the Latvian. It would be good if you add a CD with voice recordings.

As a physicist and a singer, I found this publication to make the function of the voice more understandable than trying to make sense out of empirical experience alone.
