Please join Dr. Theodore Dimon, Director and Founder of The Dimon Instiute, for a discussion of his recently published book, Anatomy of the Voice: An Illustrated Guide for Singers, Vocal Coaches, and Speech Therapists (North Atlantic Books, 2018). Beautifully illustrated by G. David Brown, program illustration director at Winthrop University who has worked with Dr. Dimon on four previous books, this guide "explains in clear and concise language the anatomy and mechanics of the mysterious and complex bodily system we call the voice" (publisher's description). It covers the anatomy of breathing; the larynx; the extrinsic muscles of the larynx; the mouth and pharynx; the face and jaw; the evolution and function of the larynx, and includes an epilogue and index.
