Have you ever heard your voice played back on a tape recorder? The first time you heard it, you probably said, “That's not me.” The following thought was probably, “Do I sound like that when I talk?”And, the third silent thought was,“Better do something about it quick!”But, what to do? How do you start improving your voice? The best solution is to take lessons from a voice teacher. This, however, costs money and takes time, both precious commodities. If your career is in the acting profession, this is the only solution. But, if you are not directly connected with the entertainment world, you will not want to go to such lengthy measures. Having a good speaking voice is an asset in any profession, and nothing is more revealing about your personality than your voice. What does the voice do? It reveals all the emotions inherent in man: anger, frustration,happiness, contentment, etc. Actually, the impression you make on other people is not done with words, but how you speak them. The most important word in the human language today is “communication.”Without it, enemies are made, friendships broken, business lost. When the phone was invented, the bulk of communications was taken from the hands and given to the voice. Yet, while children are taught their grammar and ABC's in school, the art of elocution is ignored. Now, you have reached a point in your life when you realize something is missing, and, being a mature person, you naturally want to correct this lack.“Do it yourself”has become the national password, so your problem is finding a book that is easily understood, practical, and interesting. Look no further, you are holding it in your hands. This book was written by a woman who has made her living by properly using her voice. Marjorie Hellier, actress, singer, lecturer and tutor with twenty-five years' experience in the handling of voices of every age and type, vividly describes her individual (and successful) approach to the art of voice control. Marjorie Hellier has set down all the pertinent facts necessary for improving your voice, and has done it in such a delightful manner, you will find yourself eager to improve. With her simple instructions and illustrations, it will take only a short time for you to notice a remarkable change in the quality of your voice. If you don't believe it, go back to that revealing tape recorder after you have thoroughly digested and applied the principles taught in this book, and hear the pleasing changes with your own ears.
