VoiceGym

... develops singing and speech and connects them in such a way that singing gains naturally clear and expressive words, while speaking gains the extended colour, rhythm and pitch that engages the listener

There are three parts to this exercise system

The Voice Gym exercise book and audio CD provides all the fundamental exercise materials you need for the development and maintenance of your singing or speaking voice

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 Now that you have all the tools here is a variety of vocal material to build your vocal confidence - 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.

VoiceGym exercises are particularly helpful to those who

Already sing or speak well, but who want to improve
Had a poor vocal beginning from which they would like to escape
Have been told they can't sing
Have a terror of being asked to read or present in public
Are having orthodontic treatment and are wearing appliances, and who want to reprogramme face, tongue, jaw muscles and whole-body posture
Are pregnant, or have young children, and do not realise how important a role the mother plays in development of voice, teeth and intelligence (See Baby VoiceGym)
Have no maintenance system for their most important professional tool - the voice. Voice loss is not the time to think about that, prevention is better

Unfortunately we can't currently offer the option of buying the VoiceGym pack so as to get started yourself, since the VoiceGym exercises are currently out of print, but it is hoped that we will be able to print a new edition relatively soon.
