To old timers Ventriloquism was a mystifying art heard at long intervals on the vaudeville stage. Because Mr Ganthony was one of the old masters who directed his work to those who wish to teach themselves - and we know that so many people might want to do just that - this 'how to' guide has been reprinted from the original plates. Mr Ganthony believed that ventriloquists were not born, but made by the desire to learn and the willingness to practice.

A Systematic Approach to Voice: The Art of Studio Application is a professional resource presenting a framework for the integration of science-informed principles of voice production and pedagogical application in the training of singers. Author Dr. Kari Ragan has spent years using this organizational template of the five voice systems—respiration, phonation, registration, articulation, and resonance—to identify technical challenges and design corrective vocal exercises in order to facilitate efficient singing. Each of the voice system chapters contains a brief overview of the mechanics as well as key points for teachers, or “teacher takeaways.” The book’s core offering is vocal exercises which, framed within a systematic approach, provide strategies for the art of studio application. The intent is an approach that leads to technically proficient singing working in service of great artistry. Key Features: * Over 85 vocal exercises for studio application framed within a systematic approach for both a CCM and classical aesthetic * Brief overview of the mechanics of each voice system and relevant “teacher takeaways” * Extensive discussion on semi-occluded vocal tract (SOVT) exercises * Introduction of several kinesthetic singing tools * Eight sample warm-up protocols designed for various levels of singers and both CCM and classical genres * Video demonstrations for each vocal exercise and sample warm-up

This book will cover most of the social, emotional, psychological and intellectual concerns that parents have about their children during the middle years. These will include conduct problems; social skills and relationships; family problems; moods and depression; school-related concerns; emotional concerns; hyperactivity; concerns about personality or lifestyle; and morals, ethics and values. The art of parenting offers you sound advice and practical parenting techniques based on years of putting that theory into practice. Besides believing that children are worth it, the author also believes that any method of discipline should preserve the dignity of both parent and child. Parents will also learn how to empower and influence their children instead of controlling them and trying to build and strengthen the mind, teaching them how to think, not just what to think. A very useful book with parenting tips for parents, teachers & students.

The title of this work derives from Costa-Lima's reading of what is probably the most famous passage in Kant's Third Critique. In Kant's thesis that the results of aesthetic judgment are "generally communicable but without the mediation of a concept," Costa-Lima discovers the necessity to identify and underscore a silence. This silence - these "limits of voice" - becomes the complex metonymy for the central theme of this book, literary experience as a case of aesthetic experience. In pursuing this theme, Costa-Lima views aesthetic and literary experience as a historically limited potentiality and examines the limits of aesthetic experience, which comes from its dependence on contextual requirements. The concern about "limits of voice" is developed on three different levels. First, Costa-Lima focuses, as a historical and systematic condition for aesthetic and literary experience, on subjectivity as the subject's right to speak in his/her own name. Second, he argues that, although historical modes of speaking and experiencing were inscribed into and legitimized by cosmological constructions, subjectivity requires the existence of a context no longer grounded in cosmology, which he refers to as "the Law." Third, he postulates the double dependence of literary and aesthetic experience on the emergence of subjectivity and the existence of "the Law" as its enabling and limiting frame condition. This book answers a challenge that has persisted in literary theory and literary history for almost two decades - how to historicize the concept of literature.
