This thorough and informative book is designed to guide music therapy students, young clinicians, and educators in techniques for developing a rich, varied, engaging, and healthy clinical voice for use in music therapy practice. Because the voice is so individual and unique, the material leads each music therapist on a very personal journey of exploration and discovery. Through practical information and exercises, readers will learn how to make the most of their own authentic voice, while maintaining good vocal health. It is the enhancement of each therapist’s authentic voice that is the aim of this guide. However, within each real and authentic voice there are unexamined and unexplored depths which can be enhanced through knowledge, practice, and reflection. The therapist’s authentic voice then becomes a valuable tool in which the client can find assurances of trust, empathy, and hope.
