Science is beginning to prove what ancient cultures fully embraced: your voice can become one of the most powerful agents of transformation in every facet of your life. Free Your Voice offers you the liberating insights and personal instruction of music healing legend Silvia Nakkach, whose four-decade immersion in the voice as a creative force makes her a uniquely qualified educator. With co-author Valerie Carpenter, Silvia shows how to reclaim the healing potential of your voice (regardless of training or experience) through more than 100 enjoyable exercises that are steeped in spiritual tradition and classical vocal technique and backed by the latest science.
Free Your Voice invites us to “savor a banquet of our own divine sounds” as we practice breathwork, chant, and other yogic techniques for emotional release, opening to insight, and much more. Supplemented by 32 downloadable digital audio tracks offering Silvia's guidance through many of the exercises, here is a definitive resource for implementing the voice as an instrument of healing and fulfillment, exploring:
- How to develop a practice of breath and voice, performed with consistency and imagination, where sound designs its own landscapes through the expressive power of the voice
- A series of sonorous yogic practices that involve subtle movements and the sustained focus of the mind in sound
- A gentle path for developing a voice that is fully embodied, uniquely expressive, and played like a fine musical instrument
- Invocatory words and ancient seed sounds that deliver explicit spiritual information for expansion of consciousness and well-being
- A beginning repertory of mantras and chants from many cultures that you can build on and share as you deepen your practice
- Techniques for vocal improvisation to engage your singing imagination and enrich your musical offerings
- How to foster confidence and kindness toward yourself as a vulnerable chanteur of the universal song
- How to cultivate singing as a spiritual practice for yourself and to serve a larger community
“With regular practice,” writes Silvia, “vocalizing, singing, and chanting become an ordinary miracle that effortlessly leads you to a sense of self-confidence, compassion, and Love Supreme.” Free Your Voice is your guide to discovering, opening, and revealing the full potential of your own voice.

One of the best books on singing I have come across... Review by Andrea
This is one of the best books on the voice that I have read. Silvia's approach is both practical and profound if put into practice properly. As a voice coach and professional vocalist, I have to give this 5 stars for everything it covers - especially the mystical elements :) Anyone who is interested in expanding their voice should read this!

Love This Book!! Review by Freebird
This book is exactly what I need! I am loving every word. Can't put it down. It feeds my singing soul.
Like others, I cannot access the guided audio practice downloads. I have followed the links listed in the book, and the SoundsTrue comments below, ( http://www.soundstrue.com/freeyourvoice/) but have not been able to access the downloads or the bonus podcast page. Instead it takes me to the "Free Gifts from Sounds True" page.

Review for Free Your Voice Review by Ashlynn Manning
First I have to say THANK YOU to Silvia Nakkach!
This book has been transforming my life for the last two months. Tonight, in fact, the guidance of specific exercises and accompanying recordings helped me use vocalization to come through a moment of physical discomfort and emotional unrest. It is such beautiful work, presented in such an accessible fashion, and I have been opened and grounded by it in a huge way. (Posted on September 25, 2013)

Review for Free Your Voice Review by Steven B
Many thanks to Silvia for this exceptionally well-articulated book, bringing together ancient wisdom and modern science in a unified approach to Sound Healing.
As a professional musician and teacher, I have found that Free Your Voice provides both a wealth of new info and a fresh perspective on the fundamentals (rhythm, melody, harmony, etc.)--there are many great points of entry here for beginning musicians. I find myself returning to the book again and again to recall juicy bits of info, such as the list of ten principal Rasas (moods or flavors) found in Indian classical music.
The accompanying recordings provide a fun and easy way to learn and begin practicing the sound exercises laid out in the text. Each track is like an ocean of sound you can immerse yourself in and explore.
I recommend this book to anyone and everyone, especially those interested in promoting wellness through sound and music. The possibilities are infinite! (Posted on January 26, 2013)
