    Jeannette Nelson

    Product Code: BQEBA
    Essential warm-up exercises for anyone who wants to use their voice more effectively. If you're using your voice in a professional capacity - as a performer, a public speaker, a teacher, or even for long hours over the telephone - then warming up is an essential part of ensuring best practice and vocal health. On this CD, Jeannette Nelson, Head of Voice at the National Theatre, provides three complete and easy-to-use voice warm-ups that she uses with actors and non-actors alike. Simply press play, and follow the instructions, either on your own or in a group. Each warm-up helps you release physical tension and prepare your breathing, open up your voice and improve your resonance, and get the speech muscles in your mouth working freely. There is also a warm-down for after you have been using your voice, to release any tensions, re-establish good muscle action, and keep healthy for the next time. `Jeannette's warm-up sessions are tremendous' ZoeI? Wanamaker CBE `Jeannette's knowledge is astonishing, and her approach so gentle and effective' Derren Brown `She makes voice production endlessly fascinating and fun. There is no one better' Rory Kinnear

    Jeannette Nelson

    Product Code: BLONS
    Fall in love with your voice. Get to know how it works. You will soon feel how good it is to sound like you. In The Voice Exercise Book, Jeannette Nelson - Head of Voice at the National Theatre - shares the voice exercises she uses with many of Britain's leading actors to help to keep their voices in shape. Her belief is that all of us, not just actors, can learn to use our voices well. Whether you perform professionally or you just want to be understood clearly and easily, you can improve your voice by knowing how it works and by practising simple exercises. The aim is not to 'fake it' - to try to sound like someone else. It is to find your authentic voice: to be honestly and clearly you in any situation. 'Jeannette's warm-up sessions are tremendous and this book extends those exercises.' Zoe Wanamaker CBE; 'Jeannette's knowledge is astonishing, and her approach so gentle and effective.' Derren Brown; 'She makes voice production endlessly fascinating and fun. There is no one better.' Rory Kinnear; 'A must for anyone who is serious about producing a strong, clean noise from their voice box.' Lenny Henry CBE
