Command your voice with confidence. The way you communicate can make a lasting difference to your prospects. Being able to convey meaning with clarity and confidence is an asset that can drive your career, whatever your profession. That’s where City Academy’s years of experience dealing with vocal training and performance comes in.
Our Articulation and Clarity course is designed for Business Professionals who want to develop their enunciation, tone, command and vocal confidence. The course is a practical exploration of how the voice and speech muscles function. This allows you to have more autonomy over your sounds and explore the vocal and physical habits that prevent your voice from working optimally.
In Articulation and Clarity, you will learn how to develop better grounding and physical release; to improve breath control and pitch control. An experienced tutor will guide you through rigorous articulation exercises, in order to develop more precise and flexible diction without overworking or pushing. Each week you will gain a series of practical, vocal routines that train specific elements of your speech. You’ll also have the opportunity to engage with group text exercises to implement new skills and techniques.
This course will give you a deep understanding of how your voice works and how to get the most out of it. You’ll learn to strengthen tone and pitch variation, to prevent mumbling or ‘swallowing’ your words. Your voice will carry further, with greater authority and precision. Working from text and verbal drills, you’ll study and train the muscles of articulation, ensuring your “clarity toolkit” is always at the ready. These skills will take you through your everyday life and business, continue your life and professional skills training.
