4.0 out of 5 stars Why I liked it and who I think this book is meant for..., 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read the previous review I can understand the disappointed perspective if one needed new insights on Chakra work. But for a novice approaching the work the first time and needing some basic information then this book is perfect.
I'm a vocal coach who uses colours, energies and vibrations to encourage my students the ability to access their vocal potential. I'm currently doing a research project on how working with the throat chakra may enhance vocal clarity and resonance and this book has helped me immensely. While it is written by a PhD, the language is incredibly accessible. The exercises are simple enough to carry out - my only criticism being that the accompanying CD lacks the quality of the book in that the exercises could have been better demonstrated. Nonetheless, I'm still really happy with the purchase of this book.

I'm doing an MA in voice and this is on the reading list. Would still recommend it regardless for its simplicity and structure.

Love these. A lot cheaper than Apple. Good quality sound. Strangely - one earphone stopped working so hence the need to re-order but still great for its price.

Cannot fault this book. Structure, simple and easy to read. Great for those who need pictures rather than loads of dry text to stimulate them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best bag ever!!!, 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had one before - loved it. Had some spillages in it which wore away the mesh bottom but otherwise it would have last ages. Got this replacement and it's like falling in love all over again. Seriously. Best bag ever. Much cheaper on Amazon than in the shops!


Use and Training of the Human Voice: A Bio-Dynamic Approach to Vocal Life
Use and Training of the Human Voice: A Bio-Dynamic Approach to Vocal Life
by Arthur Lessac
Edition: Paperback
Price: £50.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The one that makes sense!, 28 April 2013
Having read so many voice books in preparation for my MA, I was recommended Lessac for his teaching specifically regarding diction - consonant work. I must say this is the first book that actually makes sense to me. I've read Linklater, Houseman, Carey, Thomas, Rodenburg and Berry who are all very good, but this is the first book I've found that doesn't alienate you by being too technical or make you feel stupid trying to make sense of the academic language. It's easily accessible, incredibly useful (exercise wise) and a valuable (worth the price tag) resource to have in your library, whether as a teacher of voice, a drama student or actor. Spend the money and get it. It's worth it.
