mini-book is a guide to discovering the joy of speech for people who
may never have considered its boundless capabilities, for those who
would like a greater awareness of voice, and for those who would
like to become more confident speakers.
It introduces the reader to simple drama school techniques adapted
for general use. This mini-book is perfect for anyone wanting to
feel the flow and fluidity of language, wanting to have a greater
command of the spoken word, and wanting to feel the joy of speaking
"Tell me and I'll forget. Show me and I may not remember. Involve
me and I'll understand".
This Native American saying expresses what this mini-book is: it is
the practical side of that journey of discovery. The workshop
format is for you, the reader, to do the relaxation, the breathing,
and vocal exercises, and to feel how the body works for you. You
will learn how to set in motion the sophisticated internal workings
of your body to create sounds with resonance and meaning. You will
sense the manifestation of energy, you will hear the enhancement of
your voice as you progress, and realise the pleasure you can give to
others by simple speaking fluidly and fluently.
