From the author
“I enjoy helping people to improve the quality of their lives through the exploration and the expression of their voices. As my fascination with the intriguing effects of this ancient activity grew, I kept a journal of my insights and discoveries. Eventually, that collection of tips, truths and exercises grew into ‘Eat Sleep Sing’. This book is the result of many years practising, performing and teaching the art. I hope it will inspire a new wave of interest and exploration in singing. Whether you’re young or not-so-young, on stage or in the shower, this book will inform, encourage and delight the voice in all of us!”
