In this newly revised classic, Chuck Jones, the leading expert on using the voice to convey character, clearly and concisely explains his groundbreaking techniques. First, Jones examines acting basics related to the voice: being heard, character choices, and power. Then he introduces daily exercises that release, stretch, and strengthen the voice, in order to increase the actor's expressive range. For any actor who wants to grow and develop, "Make Your Voice Heard" offers powerful, practical tools for connecting the voice to emotions - and using the vocal instrument to create new levels of meaning.
