There are three parts to the adult VoiceGym exercises
Part 1 Introductory whole-body exercises to connect voice, body, brain, speech and singing
The VoiceGym exercise book and audio CD provide you with the tools to connect voice, body, brain, speech and singing. After each exercise session you can find the answers to the questions that spring into mind in the VoiceGym Book.
Part 2 Tongue position, jaw translation and pelvic stability
These are potentially major areas of interference in the voice and in your life. Part 2 deals with them separately before encouraging them to work together. A new attitude to opening your mouth and a strengthening of pelvic and related muscles will bring major improvements to speech, singing and confidence.
Part 3 Material to build your vocal confidence
Including songs to sing, prose and poems. Develop resonance and pitch range reading poetry and prose aloud; roll and improvise - the ultimate freedom for voice and body; extend your singing repertoire over a greater pitch range using whole body stretch.
Additional items needed for the VoiceGym course
Some additional equipment will be required to complete the VoiceGym course. A correctly sized physio-ball (sometimes called a gym ball or swiss ball) and a resistance band (a heavy, green band is best for adults) are essential if you are to get the full benefit from the exercises. You will also learn how to use a balance (rocker) board and a bean bag to work on postural stability, and improve your pitch range, so you may want to consider investing in these as well. All of these items are available from a variety of online suppliers including Amazon - more information on sources and sizing, as well as plans for making your own balance board, are provided in the Exercise book.
The paperback edition of the VoiceGym Exercises is out of print, but we have now produced a new electronic version, which we have been developing as an alternative to the printed copies. It provides updated editions of both the VoiceGym text book and the adult VoiceGym exercise book as PDF (ebook) files on a computer CD (these can be read interactively on a computer and on most tablets and ipads), as well as the audio CD that accompanies the exercises and printable exercise sheets. The computer CD also contains background information and published material by Angela, and gives you the complete VoiceGym voice and body exercise system for adults.
