Find Your Authentic Voice
Strengthen Your Breath Control at the Vocal Gym
Feel Your Voice “Drop In” to Your Body
Connect to your voice so that connecting to your audience is effortless.
Vocal Production helps actors to be fully heard by teaching them what their bodies are doing when they speak. By uncovering bad habits and using vocal warmups to strengthen control over tone, resonance, and clarity of text, actors can feel confident in their storytelling power. Faculty member Page Clements introduces a range of physical exercises to strengthen breath control and support, relaxing the throat and upper body. Actors will learn to feel their voice “drop in” to the body using the techniques of Patsy Rodenburg, Kristin Linklater, Edith Skinner, and Page’s own. Special attention is paid to fitting regular warm-ups into your everyday life.
Vocal Production is for you if you...
Are unsure if your voice is holding you back from your best storytelling.
Find that your voice trembles or strains when you get nervous.
Want to express (rather than force) both intimate on-camera moments and big on-stage ones.
After this course, you will…
Use your voice to connect to the emotional life of any character and truly support the text.
Know what it feels like to connect your voice to your body, feeling a solid foundation of support.
Have a practical warmup routine and a sense of how best to incorporate it into your everyday life.
