Voice Training for Actors

Voice Training for Actors

 

This course is an immersive voice training experience. You will engage in practical exercises, giving you clear tools to develop your voice work independently achieve support, core vocal strength, range and resonance. This course has been designed for actors and performers wishing to gain technical training in the foundations of voice work. You will learn key exercises to improve your vocal confidence in public or performance environments.

BREATH & BODY

Breath and awareness of how you use your body is the foundation of voice work. Breathing freely is fundamental to the technique for any performer. The more you are aware of your body and breath habits, the more choices you will have with your speaking & singing tone.

RANGE & POWER

Designed to explore the individual's natural colour within the voice to offer variety in tone for the audience. You will also identify how to connect and share your sound in different spaces, to ensure the voice can engage easily and freely without pushing.

CLARITY & TEXT

Clarity is important for conveying a character's thoughts and feelings. If an audience can't hear or understand what you are saying - they are guessing. A performer is required to work on a variety of styles of text in different settings. The training of speech and clarity invites the audience to be a participant in the clear telling of the play or story.

VOICE TRAINING COURSE CONTENT

Topics generally covered on this course include:

  • Vocal Anatomy: Know your tool kit and how the larynx and vocal tract work to produce good tone and a strong, open sound
