A Contemplative Approach to Singing - Through Meditation, Movement and Vocalization.

Circle of Sound Voice Education is a contemplative approach to singing that blends ancient Eastern breathing meditation and martial art movement practices with Western bel canto vocalization exercises as an inspiring and healthful way of enriching traditional approaches to studio, classroom, and rehearsal pedagogy. This revolutionary approach connects the power of singing to the wholeness of body, mind, and spirit – all in one great textbook.

This small, inexpensive and easy-to-read book, full of pictures and detailed explanations of the suggested exercises, is a "must read" for all choral conductors. ...I would recommend the book highly to all voice teachers as well, regardless of the level of singers with whom they work, simply because of the philosophy and world-view presented about singing and sound, as parts of life and as tools for spiritual growth.
