In this must-read book for anyone looking to learn more about their voice, Richard Fink IV shows how singers, from beginners to seasoned professionals, can reach their full potential through a scientific lens. Drawing from his own experiences of overcoming obstacles and learning how to sing, Richard, a now celebrated singing teacher and Guinness World Record holder as a vocalist, breaks down the only vocal methodology in history to receive a US Patent, the Throga® Technique.

In the 7 Dimensions of Singing, readers are taken on a journey through vocal anatomy, accelerated skill training, self-diagnostics and customizable solutions. Readers can also explore chapter exercises first-hand and download audio examples and practice tracks online. Throughout this book, Richard brilliantly weaves the coordination of complex physiological structures into simple concepts, by comparing them to everyday activities, along with dynamic examples of real-world applications from Throga students; from performing on the streets of Sydney, to nervously waiting backstage at Radio City Music Hall.

The 7 Dimensions of Singing: The Throga® Technique is essential for singers of all ages, styles, and skill levels, helping to connect the mind (the singer) and the body (the instrument) through awareness and mindful-practice.
