The voice doctor

Professor Arnold Maran, a head and neck cancer surgeon, reveals the secrets of the human voice.

The singing voice is one of the greatest gifts that humans possess, and forms an integral part of the world we live in. Songs are everywhere and, whether you love opera, rock, pop, country and western or the big band sound, all rely on the power of the human voice to communicate their message.

How is the voice produced? Why do women’s voices differ from men’s? What makes Pavarotti fit for the concert hall, Robbie Williams fit for a stadium but many of us only for our own bathrooms?

Professor Maran has worked with and operated on well known singers from all genres during his career. ‘The Voice Doctor’ reveals the secrets of the human voice.
