Publisher Description:
Finding Your Voice won't teach you to sound like Frank Sinatra, Maria Callas, or the latest rock singer. This rare and inspiring book will encourage you to sound like you -- and once you develop your own voice, you are likely to find inner harmony and strength as well. Professional singing instructor Carolyn Sloan explains to readers that "voice" extends way beyond the mere sound produced by your own vocal chords. Instead, the way you sound has more to do with your unique form of self-expression. Whereas many books on singing are impersonal and "how-to" in their teaching methods, Finding Your Voice is holistic in its philosophy, allowing readers to create their own individual course of study. Therapeutic and spiritually engaging, this book offers easy-to-follow exercises for such preparatory measures as breathing and diction; it also ventures to teach readers to use singing as a metaphor for facing other challenges in their lives. Finding Your Voice is for people of all levels -- from the shower to the Metropolitan Opera.

Contributor Bio(s): Carolyn Sloan has earned a reputation as a respected vocalist, educator, and composer, with experience in pop, jazz, and musical theater. She has used her classical training as a jumping-off point for inventing a singing technique that addresses the "whole" person. A graduate of New York University and the High School of Performing Arts in Manhattan, Ms. Sloan is a member of ASCAP and the Dramatist's Guild. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, actor Stuart Zagnit, and son Samuel. This is her first book.
