Voice: The Universal Instrument DVD
Teach your students about voice-the ultimate portable instrument-and singing, the most widely practiced form of musical expression, with this wonderful program. Starting from the premise that everyone can sing, the video follows several young singers who, aided by their teachers, learn how to develop their singing voices and how to achieve their own styles. Along the way, the program explores the varied approaches to singing (including a performance by Bobby McFerrin); the physical and social benefits of voice training; the voice mechanism and how to protect it; breathing; interpretation; technique; and career opportunities related to singing. All these aspects are related to the underlying theme-that learning to sing provides enduring enjoyment and that everyone can do it.
