Supporting your Voice: cultivating awareness and healthy practices

Is this workshop for me?

The voice is a valuable tool for lecturers and presenters of all types, and yet it is often only addressed when it is seen to have problems. An attention to and knowledge of the voice, however, can not only help to minimize common problems such as vocal fatigue and volume, but also aid in adding aural interest and variety to lectures and presentations.

Workshop detail

This session provided a basic introduction into factors affecting vocal production, including body-voice connection and breathing. These factors will then be linked to the practice of using the voice in classroom and seminar settings. Participants will be given brief opportunities to experiment with their voices, exploring a selection of exercises used by singers and actors for getting in touch with and developing healthy vocal use.

Workshop delivered by Dr Allison Hui.
