The Vocal Arts Workbook + DVD is a complete learning programme drawing on the work of a wide range of practitioners to be used at home, as a course text, or as a way to integrate 20-30 mins of voice work into an acting class. The DVD contains: 85 mins of video and 38 physical exercises. Download them to your ipod and copy the movements as you go along.
