Summary "Looking at voice science from the practitioner's viewpoint, Singing and Science: Body, Brain and Voice is a comprehensive book for all those interested in how the singing voice works. It has application to singers, teachers of singing, music educators, choral conductors, voice scientists, and speech-language pathologists and physical therapists working with singers. The title reflects a major change since the first edition of Singing and Voice Science in 2000. That is that new technology has facilitated neuroscience research, making available information on the role of brain and mind in music learning, in language, and in psychomotor learning and performance. The text explores modern voice science and scientific findings in the context of musical concerns of the singer. Modern scientific knowledge of the mechanics of the vocal instrument allows what is heard to be associated with specific physical co-ordinations as well as providing a basis for teaching technical skills, for diagnosing and correcting vocal faults, and for ensuring efficient voice production. This science is put into an applicable body of information under familiar terms, such as breath management, phonation, resonance and articulation, and vocal health. The text also examines the relationship between music and language and how singers approach conveying both linguistic and musical meanings. The growing knowledge in the fields of neuroscience and cognition is applied to how the singer works as a musical instrument, in terms of embodying the technical aspects of voice in a holistic way capable of conveying musical, linguistic and emotional meanings to an audience. This informs an efficient approach to teaching and learning" -- Publisher website.
