an exercise video for your voice - as easy as watching TV!
a car warmup on both audiocassette and CD - help your voice as you drive!
a simple, easy-to-grasp system of vocal principles - it's not about work, it's about
paying attention to your inner experience .
an illustrated booklet with the complete text of both videos, illustrations, and more.
an easy-to-follow warmup poster to follow - for warmups from 1 minute to 10 minutes or more.

You were born able to use your voice well. Learn how to regain a baby's vocal power and endurance.
All this, with a minimum of sweat, jargon, and confusion.
Why pay for expensive lessons until you've tried the system that many professional storytellers use to keep their voices in shape?
How Much Longer Can You Take Your Voice for Granted?
As someone who talks as an important part of your life, you rely on your voice. In fact, any of you who speak as part of a job - whether in teaching, sales, law, training and development, even patient care - need to know that you can count on your voice.
Many people who depend on their voices never give voice work a second thought. Unfortunately, you can't count on a voice that you abuse.

What should I do when...?
Use these videos in the privacy of your home. Listen to the tapes and CDs in your car, while exercising, even while resting.
These videos, audios - and all the other resources - give you all the information and exercises you need.
For one thing, they cover the long-term care and development of your voice - the work you'll do at home, away from the stress of performing. For another, they also guide you through the what-just-happened, where-do-I-go-now moments when your voice is in the greatest danger of abuse.

"My voice is less strained. I think I am telling better, with a more
expressive range. It's all very useful and a great resource for me, especially as it is hard for me to get to workshops etc...." - Joan Stockbridge, Colfax, CA
One "secret" of vocal work is to warm up your voice - at least before every performance, and ideally every day. The Voice-Care Toolkit[trademark] makes this easy with its unique "Exercise Video for Your Voice," which leads you through a complete, 30 minute warm-up, complete with exercises for:
Relaxing habitually tense muscles;
Breathing from your diaphragm;
Opening your rib-cage;
Contracting your diaphragm;
Aligning your head and neck;
Plus, this video demonstrates tips for customizing your own warm-up, creating short warm-ups, and even warming up in public.
How to Develop Your Voice
The second video is a lecture-demonstration about the principles and techniques of voice work for storytellers. It gives the fundamentals of improving vocal production, as well as long-term techniques for reducing habitual muscular tensions, and demonstrations of character voices.
Nothing here is technical; nothing is about doing things "right." Rather, this video emphasizes getting in touch with the inner experience of your speaking voice - so that your listeners can "hear" your intended emotions, attitudes, and images.
It also answers common questions: how to build a character voice, deal with difficult performance situations, diagnose problems in expressiveness, etc. All of this information is presented in a practical format that will allow you to solve the various vocal problems that telling stories is likely to involve - whether these problems are already present or show up in the coming years.
"I use what I've learned...visualization, stretching, effectively breathing (how sad that, as adults, we must re-learn something so natural!), "sounding" - it's all as powerful as any other form of meditation or exercise in preparing for the task at hand." - Lynette Ford, Columbus, OH
If you knew a great voice teacher - and they ARE out there - you'd pay $50, $100, even $200 or more for a single session. A series of lessons can easily run over a thousand dollars - and leave you with nothing to refer to. But the Storyteller's Voice-Care Toolkit gives you a permanent reference plus daily warm-ups, answers, and advice - even the "Exercise Video for Your Voice" - all for $119.95 (plus $10 s&h).
Seven day special: $95.70. Just 5 monthly installments of $19.14 (plus $10 s&h).
