The Singer's Guide to Complete Health (Book)
By Anthony F. Jahn, MD

A comprehensive guidebook on a wide range of health issues that affect the voice, The Singer’s Guide to Complete Health is a vital resource for singers, vocal performers, and those who care for them.

Written by Anthony F. Jahn, MD, internationally acclaimed otolaryngologist and Director of Medical Services at the Metropolitan Opera, this book informs vocal performers on a variety of health issues, as well as remedies to the most important and common health problems that singers face in their careers. Drawing on the additional expertise of a diverse group of health care specialists and music professionals, it includes suggestions on ways to prevent illness and maintain a healthy vocal lifestyle, not only with traditional methods such as diet, exercise, and Alexander technique, but also holistic approaches such as meditation, yoga, tai chi, acupuncture, and Chinese herbs.

"All singers should read [this book] with care...An indispensable book that I think doctors would also be wise to read." - Fred Plotkin, Opervore
