This pioneering introduction to Stanislavsky's methods and modes of actor training covers all of the essential elements of his System. Recreating ‘truthful’ behaviour in the artificial environment, awareness and observation, psychophysical work, given circumstances, visualization and imagination, and active analysis are all introduced and explored. Each section of the book is accompanied by individual and group exercises, forming a full course of study in the foundations of modern acting. A glossary explains the key terms and concepts that are central to Stanislavsky’s thinking at a glance. The book’s companion website is full of downloadable worksheets and resources for teachers and students. Experiencing Stanislavsky Today is enhanced by contemporary findings in psychology, neuroscience, anatomy and physiology that illuminate the human processes important to actors, such as voice and speech, creativity, mind-body connection, the process and the production of emotions on cue. It is the definitive first step for anyone encountering Stanislavsky’s work, from acting students exploring his methods for the first time, to directors looking for effective rehearsal tools and teachers mapping out degree classes.

Vocal Technique: A Physiologic Approach, Second Edition builds upon the premise firmly established in its first edition -- a singer who understands how his or her body functions when speaking and singing will necessarily be a better singer and teacher of singing. As such, it is the ideal text for voice classes and lessons at the university level as well as for voice lessons in the independent studio. Because it is so comprehensive, including anatomy, posture, breath management, physiology of tone production, achieving resonance, the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), classification of voices, health care for singers, a logical method for learning repertoire, stage deportment, and technology in the voice studio, it is also an excellent book for teaching vocal pedagogy. This text provides the essential information regarding anatomic and physiologic functions connected with the speaking and singing process so that singers will learn to develop their technique fully and thus maintain optimal technical skill and vocal health throughout a long singing and/or teaching career. The technical aspects of singing are discussed in detail, giving the singer the tools to apply this technique to a wide variety of repertoire and languages. The author provides a thorough introduction to the IPA and its application to the English, Italian, French, German, and Castilian Spanish languages. New to this edition: A new chapter on Science and Technology in the Voice Studio, including links to sites providing equipment and software for the voice studioUpdated illustrations detailing anatomy and physiologic functionEvery chapter has been updated to improve comprehensibility, especially the chapter covering the use of the IPASignificantly updated information on health and nutrition to reflect recent research in the fieldA list of recommended sources where singers and teachers can download free and/or inexpensive music for use in the voice class or studio

Introduction to Quantitative Genetics

My aim in writing this book has been to provide an introductory textbook of quantitative genetics, with the emphasis on general principles rather than on practical application, and one moreover that can be understood by biologists of no more than ordinary mathematical ability. In pursuit of this latter aim I have set out the mathematics in the form that I, being little of a mathematician, find most comprehensible, hoping that the consequent lack of rigour and elegance will be compensated for by a wider accessibility. The reader is not, however, asked to accept conclusions without proof. Though only the simplest algebra is used, all the mathematical deductions essential to the exposition of the subject are demonstrated in full. Some knowledge of statistics, however, is assumed, particularly of the analysis of variance and of correlation and regression. Elementary knowledge of Mendelian genetics is also assumed.
