Life Cycle of the Voice – new films now available

In association with Voice Workshop we have made a series of films about the voice through the lifespan: developmental stages through childhood and adolescence, the effect of hormones on the voice including pregnancy and menopause, and finally the ageing voice. The films are taken from a live presentation on this subject and have numerous recordings of voices in different ages and stages. As you would expect, the information is very carefully researched: each chapter includes a full list of references.
For just £45 you can buy all 16 films with over two and a half hours of material; and just to show you how good it is, we’re offering you one of the chapters for free.
