Speak. Laugh. Cry. Shout. Scream. Sing. Whether you're an actor or a singer, your voice is called upon to do many things. But how do you keep your voice healthy while satisfying these demands? Theatre voice specialist Joan Melton is uniquely qualified to show how. She maintains that the training of singers and actors should be similar. Her groundbreaking book outlines a course of study that integrates basic elements of singing technique into the whole range of theatre voice training. The physicality of Melton's approach addresses all the issues of concern for professional voice users in any field. Melton's detailed work on phrasing demonstrates the technical similarities between text that is sung and text that is spoken. She supports her suggestions for relating and integrating voice and movement, toofor those in musical theatre who must sing, speak, and dancewith exercises that fully engage the performer physically and vocally. Kenneth Tom contributes a chapter on vocal anatomy, offering clear and accessible material on how the voice works along with practical advice on its care.

Joan Melton, Ph.D., heads the Voice/Movement program at California State University, Fullerton. She trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama, London, and has taught at leading drama and music centers in the United States, Britain, Ireland, and Australia. She is a published author and composer, a specialist in twentieth century vocal music, and a Master Teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework. Visit her website at onevoicebook.com.

Kenneth Tom, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Communicative Disorders in the Department of Speech Communication, California State University, Fullerton. He trained in Vocal Performance at the New England Conservatory, Boston, and received his doctorate in Speech and Hearing Sciences from the University of Iowa. His current teaching and research focus on performance voice, voice acoustics and physiology.
