The Simple Science of Singing

The simple Science of Singing

This comprehensive little book takes a refreshing and accessible look at some of the most detailed and complex ideas in voice science as it applies to singing, but tells the story in simple language. The science of the voice is not simple and it is not intuitive. This book makes no assumptions of prior knowledge. The fundamentals of the nature of sound and the anatomy of the voice are introduced sympathetically. Christopher Goldsack studied physics and was a physics teacher before embarking on a career as an opera singer.

Chapter headings are:

  1. Setting the scene
  2. Understanding sounds and waves
  3. Breathing
  4. Phonation and the larynx
  5. Resonance and the vocal tract
  6. A non-linear model of resonance
  7. Words
  8. The journey through life
  9. Registers
  10. Vibrancy
  11. Control
  12. So, why is the science of singing so unintuitive?

The book is priced at £14.95 plus P&P.
