Singing Training for the Actor!
Our voice is our own unique way to resonate with the external world. However, the voice is perhaps a forgotten part of ourselves that needs our attention. Whether you are in general conversation, working on your lines for a scene, preparing for an audition, or giving a public speech, tuning this instrument is crucial for optimal performance.
Developing a more powerful, confident voice requires craft and process. In this course the student will be introduced to practical techniques, and challenged to perform in a safe and motivating environment.
And yes, there will be song! This is a singing class, but with the actor in mind. Whether you have always wanted to sing, or you just need to find your actor’s voice, come and enjoy this unique journey and explore the fundamentals of the voice through a holistic, musical approach.
In this class you will
- learn the fundamentals of the voice through alignment, breath, phonation, articulation, projection and resonance
- find your own authentic sound, your true voice
- learn tools to free the voice, sing effortlessly and more organically
- understand the difference between tension and pressure
- understand your instrument through movement and breath
- participate in on-going Q&A for healthy singing
All levels are welcome!
