This book reveals the benefits of Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis's revolutionary listening training techniques. Tomatis's training is directed primarily at singers and artists, though it has been seen to have profoundly theraputic effects on those who suffer from hearing loss and psychological problems. The translation and adaptations provided by the editors of this first English version of Tomatis's work make the content easily accessible to a broad audience, and each of the book's three Parts can be read fruitfully seperately, or together, and in any order. The book will appeal to everyone who wants to understand and experience the benefits of conscious listening.
