Plural Publishing
Free sample

Each type of performer, whether singer, voice-over artists, dancer/singers, instrumentalist/singers, brings specific issues to the voice treatment team and requires special individual attention from the various members of the team, from laryngologist to speech pathologist, singing or voice teacher.

The Singer's Voice identifies these individuals, presents reports on cases with special needs and offers myriad solutions that help to preserve the voice and prevent further damage. It is written by a world-leading group of dedicated professionals from an array of disciplines related to the care and treatment of individuals who use their voices in professional settings. Ranging from current day performers to choral conductors to past rock and roll musicians, all contributors have shown a dedication to the care of the singer and performer through their studios, academic training, their research interests and experience, and their clinical and/or their performance background.

The content is thoroughly practical and written to be accessible to a wide range of voice professionals, particularly singing and voice teachers; instructors in the various performing arts; those who provide medical and allied health care; and, indeed, performers and students themselves.

 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.

Key Features:

* Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture
* Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples
* Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner
* Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture
