Actors Going Crazy for Awesome Alliterations

“Vocal Warm-Ups & Exercises Book” 

Literally Has Drama Students’ and Actors’ Tongues In A Twist!

LONDONOct. 1st, 2020

If ever there was a book not to be judged entirely on its cover, or perhaps its SEO-filled name, “Vocal Warm-Ups & Exercises Book” is it! This amazing book is unlike any publication ever previously perused and that is quite a phenomenal pursuance. It is also pocket-money priced.

 “Vocal Warm-Ups & Exercises Book” is perfect for drama students, actors, voice artists, and performers to warm-up their vocal cords, practise their diction, and is most fundamentally fun. 

“Vocal Warm-Ups & Exercises Book” is the absolute best voice exercise book on the market and has been brought to you by an actual real-life actor Jimmy Messer and his author-wife, Toula.

Jimmy has done theatre work, TV, film, and voice-overs. In fact, you can hear his dulcet tones in ‘Like Crazy,’ which won the Sundance Grand Jury favourite prize in 2011. 

The one basic thing that Jimmy learned during all of his training – including with Anna Scher, The Poor School, RADA in London, and with Lynette McNeill in Hollywood – was to look after his voice and vocal cords. Jimmy now wants to make sure that you know how to keep one of your most valuable assets safe. Be like Jimmy.

“Vocal Warm-Ups & Exercises Book” is a combination of great art and illustrations, super cool step by step guides, and an astonishing array of very short stories that take alliteration to a completely new level with absolutely EVERY word of each short story beginning with the same letter. No ands, ifs or buts. 

As David Jenkins, FRSA (Brilliant Theatre Arts) who wrote the foreword says, “Whether you are a performer, work for a company or own a business, you will always need to use your voice effectively. Not everybody has the confidence but if you have a voice, you really do have a chance.”

As the author Toula says, “Whilst still writing “Vocal Warm-Ups & Exercises Book,” a young actress immediately got in touch and suggested we contact drama schools to let them know about it as it’s perfect for students’ voice training and diction. So far, the feedback from schools has been 100% positive.”

Gone are the days of “Peter picked a peck of pickled peppers’ and ‘She sells seashells on the seashore.’ Instead, students are now being introduced to a whole new volume of these incredible modern short stories written entirely in alliteration, to get their tongues and minds around.

Stories such as “Annie and Adam’s Adventure at Arthur’s Animal Aid Association,” “Betty Bets Billy ‘Bout Blowing Bigger Bubbles Better,” and “Colin Couldn’t Comprehend Chafing Cream” WILL soon have the next generation of Olivier’s, Attenborough’s and Taylor’s enunciating perfectly.

“Vocal Warm-Ups & Exercises Book” published by 100 Percent Publishing is now available from Amazon as a pocket-sized paperback (£7.99) and Kindle download (£2.99) and is FREE for Kindle Unlimited and Prime subscribers.
