Singing, alone and in choirs, has wide-reaching health benefits for everyone, including release of oxytocin, increased production of immunoglobulin to fight infections, less need of pain medications, improved pulmonary function, fewer symptoms of depression, and a brighter outlook on life. These benefits are even more important from the sixth decade onward. At the same time, the advancing decades bring physical and vocal challenges for all voice professionals.

Martha Howe has compiled a masterclass of a book in which some of the world's leading teachers and clinicians share what they do in their studios and clinics when working with people in their fifth decade and beyond. Chapters are designed to be practical, informative, and full of hints, tips, physical and vocal exercises expressly for older voices.

The result is an invaluable resource for the study of pedagogy, and a handbook that singers, teachers, clinicians, and all voice professionals can use for themselves and for their studios with practical solutions to the challenges brought on by the aging voice.
