Like any other instrument, the voice can be learned and mastered with understanding, practice and patience. THROGA: 7 Dimensions of Singing, and the downloadable media that corresponds with its chapters, utilizes a patented system based on vocal anatomy to help you discover your true potential, connecting the mind (the singer) and the body (the instrument).
Most singers have no idea how their voice works. Guitarists, drummers and violinists spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars EVERY year to maintain and upgrade their instruments. What if you could learn how to maintain and improve your one-of-a-kind instrument with a single purchase? By unveiling the mystery of the voice through an easy-to-understand scientific approach, you can do just that.
Whether you’re an aspiring or professional vocalist, a contemporary or classical styled singer, this book will teach you how to celebrate the vocal qualities that are unique to you, while striving to build a healthy, strong and well-balanced instrument for self-expression.

“Throga, 7 Dimensions of Singing, clearly explains the most enigmatic features of the voice. As a voice pathologist, I am routinely surprised to see how many singers, voice teachers, and even voice doctors know so little about how sounds are produced. The 7 Dimensions of Singing reveals the inner workings of the singing voice so anyone could understand them, along with real-life stories that reinforce each lesson. The exercises given for each dimension are tremendously helpful to any singer looking to improve his or her voice. I advise all vocal professionals, whether they are singers, voice teachers, speech pathologists, or voice doctors to read this book for insights on not just the anatomy, but the actual physiology of how the voice works.”

“By reading this book I was hoping to find better ways to explain and clarify vocal technique to my students, as well as to discover strategies and exercises to help them improve their overall technique and vocal health. This book was exceptional in achieving all of that! It provided clear, simple, concise explanations and I found the illustrations very useful, particularly in terms of anatomy. I really appreciated the writing style of this book as well. Instead of reading like a dry textbook, it actually flowed like a novel. It was a joy to pick it up and read it, and difficult for me to put down. One of my favorite chapters was on brain research; it was simple enough to grasp the concepts but sophisticated enough to make me think more about HOW I sing and WHY certain responses happen. This is not a book of mere abstractions for vocal technique; it is clear-cut science. AND IT WORKS!”

“This method is the real deal. From expansion to recovery, Richard gives you the tools you need to take your training above and beyond what you thought possible. Grow your range, develop all characteristics of your instrument, improve control, power, stamina… THROGA is not just a set of tools, it’s the knowledge of how and where to use them to open the voice to all possibilities. And the app is amazing!!!”
“Although I have been asked many times, I generally decline to endorse colleague’s publications. This time it’s different. I have seen Richard present his master classes and I have pored through his current book. Let me say the science is rock solid and the explanation of all the elements of the voice are easy to grasp and apply. Application, of course, is largely dependent on an understanding of the working parts of what it takes to produce quality sound. Those things are covered in great detail. For any singer who has a desire to understand how their instrument works, any voice teacher who would like to be able to learn precisely what is going on in there and desires to be up to date with voice science then I have no hesitation in recommending Richard’s book, THROGA: Seven Dimensions of Singing.”
