Voice Training in Speech and Song


    THIS book is primarily designed for the use of teachers, who, as the author points out, are probably the greatest voice-users, but it will interest all who speak or sing in public. Voice production is difficult to teach even when the pupil has the advantage of performing exercises under the personal supervision of the instructor, and it may be doubted if much improvement in the use of the organs of speech can be effected by reading text-books alone; but what is possible in the direction of describing suitable exercises appears to have been accomplished with success by the author. The book provides an account of the structure and use of the vocal organs, and the means of securing distinct articulation; it should be useful to all persons who are attending practical classes for the cultivation of the voice.
