Body, Breath and Voice
Whether you are portraying a character on stage or on screen, maximise your vocal skills to unlock a new side to your performance.
Having been in the acting industry for over 8 years, training as an Actor and Voice Coach at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, I set up Speaking Voices helping people with their speaking voice.
Now I'm offering classes specifically for actors, to help build your confidence as a performer. The programme is designed to explore your voice, develop your technique, and build a strong foundation for your craft.
This 3 hour Body, Breath and Voice class will provide comprehensive coaching to help relax your body, develop breath support and employ vocal techniques to enhance articulation and resonance in your vocal performance. Through the vocal exercises, you can free your voice and create a true connection with your audience by perfecting the use of consonants, vowels, tone, pitch and pace.
You will learn:
Primary voice techniques to enhance your performance
Breath support and control
Deep belly breathing
Importance of articulation, rhythm and resonance
Build confidence with your voice
Being present and in the moment
An effective vocal warm up to use on a daily basis
How the voice works and how the body and breath are interrelated
Developing skills to practise with any text
Make effective performance choices
Phonating with ease
Techniques include but not limited to Cecily Berry, Babara Houseman, Kristin Linklater, Alison Bomber and Patsy Rodenburg.
Please note that due to the nature of voice work, the course contains a certain amount of floor work. We recommend having a yoga mat or towel to put on the floor so you're comfy.
Weekly Drop Ins
Pay on the day up to 1 hour before the session starts, great for actors who want to hone in their skills but don't want to pay a chunk of money upfront.
Maximum class size of 12. Our classes are designed to keep the class sizes small, so that each student can get the one-on-one attention.
Our weekly classes provide a safe environment to practice your acting and vocal skills in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere.
