How To Speak

How To Speak

Exercises in Voice Culture and Articulation
with Illustrative Poems
by Adelaide Patterson

how-to-speakPreface Excerpt:
The term Voice Culture is generally construed to mean a special line of training for a favored few who are gifted with the power to sing. Many people do not realize that the same training that improves singing would be beneficial to all voices. The fact that one speaks infinitely more often than he sings ought to prove the need of extending vocal training beyond the narrow bounds within which it is usually limited.

This book was produced in 1922 by Adelaide Patterson, who was the Professor of Public Speaking at the Rhode Island College of Education.
