Author: Carey, David
Price: $45.00

Teaches actors how to develop verbal skills in order to release the expressive potential of language.

Actors need to learn not only how to use their voice, but how to use voice and language together. This book is about the expressive potential of language, and how actors can develop the verbal skills to release that potential.

Written by tutors at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and authors of the successful companion title, The Vocal Arts Workbook + DVD, this book provides practical approaches to each aspect of verbal expression:
* Sound: how to use speech sounds more expressively
* Image: bring life and specificity to images when you speak
* Sense: focus on the most significant words and phrases in a speech or scene
* Rhythm: use rhythm in both verse and prose
* Argument: understand the structure or logic of language

All of these elements are brought together using one classical and one modern scene. Chapters are set out in helpful, progressive steps: Framework, Exploration, Exercises, Follow-up, Suggested Texts and Further Reading. While the book addresses the student throughout, it also provides teaching tips with specific notes for teachers.

Rebecca Carey is a voice tutor at RADA. She has extensive theatre experience as an actor and voice coach in the US. David
