Fundamentals Of Voice

  • About this Workshop

    One of the fundamental aspects in voice training is breathing. Proper use of the breath not only enables the speaker to speak with more authenticity, but it also helps to unleash any hidden or suppressed emotions in order to attain vocal, verbal and emotional clarity in what the speaker is saying. In this two-hour workshop, you will learn how to access and release your own authentic voice in order to communicate with greater clarity and confidence.

    This workshop will be conducted on Zoom.

  • Who is the workshop for?
