Your Voice: the Basics
Multimedia Voice Science and Pedagogy
by Scott McCoy
At last, the abridged version of Your Voice: An Inside View that so many people have requested. This new text features material drawn from the original, plus new material dealing with acoustics in an extremely user-friendly format. This book might be your perfect solution for undergraduate pedagogy and voice science instruction, providing solid information on singing anatomy and physiology, vocal health, and the development of critical listening skills. Acoustics and voice analysis are approached holistically, focusing on big-picture elements, rather than the nuts-and-bolts (and equations) of advanced study. The Basics continues the precedent set by Inside View, including a wealth of video, audio, and high-resolution images in support of the text. But now--and at long last--they stream directly in the text (iBooks version only).
