Description

Like an actor on stage, an instructor with a strong, dynamic voice in the classroom can more easily engage students and promote learning. This interactive workshop will help you improve your vocal presence through practical exercises that focus on breath support, vocal projection and increasing vocal dynamics (how to vary volume, pitch, tempo and intonation). These easy-to-learn techniques will help you enhance your presence in the classroom and use your voice in a healthy way.
