Updated and expanded content New images and exercises on breathing Chapter on physical expression updated New material about visual focus and facial expressions Many updates and extensions in response to reader feedback Glossary added How well do you know your body?

What Every Singer Needs to Know About the Body gives singers and their teachers a Body Mapping resource - from anatomy and physiology to body awareness - that helps them discover and correct misconceptions about the way their bodies are built and the way they function. In doing so, it provides maps with detailed descriptions of the structures and movement used in breathing, phonation, resonance, articulation and gesture - illuminated with numerous illustrations and supported by many exploratory exercises.

Differences in style result from differences in the choice of movement. Understanding and mapping the structures and movements used in singing provides the technical foundation for all singers. The purpose of this book is to provide singers with that foundation. This book does not espouse a single method or attempt to teach singing techniques.

There are many pedagogy books that present the anatomy and physiology without helping singers fin
