Foundations of Voicework

An online, self-paced course for developing the foundations of YOUR voice.

What is

In my decade-plus as a voice coach, I've worked with actors — those who are well into their professional career and those who are just beginning — singers, TED speakers, C-Suite professionals, professional athletes, entrepreneurs, podcasters, and more. And while the backgrounds and experiences of my clients obviously varies, the foundation of voicework that I teach them doesn't. And that's what this course is.

Foundations of Voicework is an online, self-paced course that includes all of the foundational material that I teach clients who are looking to develop greater voice technique. 

In this course, you’ll learn:

  • The most effective ways to warm-up your body, breath, and voice for speaking.

  • How to free your breathing to increase your breath capacity.

  • Simple steps for incorporating vocal support into your speaking.

  • How to calibrate your volume without straining or pushing.

  • Tools of Presence and how to find better connection to your speaking.

  • What’s included in the course?
    Four online course modules covering the foundational elements of voicework: presence, free breathing, vocal support, and volume calibration. Each module includes three to five Lessons, which are designated as either “Foundation Framing” or “Guided Exercises.” The Foundation Framing lessons introduce important terms and concepts and prime you for understanding the techniques you’ll be exploring in that module. The “Guided Exercises” are guided explorations for learning and integrating the voice techniques. The guided exercises can also serve as voice warm-ups for performances, auditions, interviews, and other speaking engagements. There’s also a Bonus section which includes a guided articulator warm-up and additional guided presence exercises.
  • How many lessons are included?
    There are six Foundation Framing lessons, and 11 Guided Exercises (plus 7 bonus exercises), totaling ~6 hours of teaching.
  • Where are classes held?
    Class modules will be hosted on an online platform, which you'll find at, for you to access and move through at your own pace.
  • How much is the course?
    The course costs $225. You can purchase the course here.
  • How long will I have access to course materials?
    For life! Once you purchase the course, you’ll be asked to create a login that you can use to access this course forever. Like any technique, it takes time and practice to truly learn and master so I encourage you to return to the Foundations in Voicework course for years to come!
  • How long will it take to complete the course?
    If you listen to the Module’s “Foundation Framing” lesson, and then do just one "Guided Exercise" per day, you could complete the course in under two weeks. Or if you were to treat the Modules like weekly assignments, you would complete the course in four weeks.
  • Do I need previous experience to benefit from this course?
    Nope! This course is ideal for anyone wanting to integrate the basic foundations of voice technique, whether you’re a seasoned actor looking for greater nuance and control of your voice, or a non-performer looking for greater connection in your speaking engagements and day-to-day communication.
  • Is this course only for actors/performers?
    This course is designed for anyone wanting to learn more about how to find more ease and more freedom when using their voice, whether that's in your acting, singing, public speaking, or general communication. This will be done by exploring how to let go of habits around controlling or managing your breathing, understanding the mechanics of breath as the power source for your voice, working on vocal support, and volume calibration.
  • I may have some physical limitations. Does that matter?
    In every course I teach, I remind my clients to listen to their bodies and to do less than they're capable of. So whether you consider yourself quite flexible, or whether you have injuries or other obstacles that keep you from following along with the movements as I've suggested, I hope you'll calibrate and modify the exercise to suit your body and rhythm. The range of physicality I model throughout the course includes some guided exercises that involve moving onto the floor into gentle stretches such as spinal twists, spinal roll-down, and child's pose, as well as some exercises of working in fetal position (laying on your side) to being on all-fours, to coming to standing. All of these positions can be modified. If you begin the course and have questions about how to modify, please reach out to me as I'd be glad to help support you.
  • Is this a singing course?
    While you’ll certainly find that many of the exercises and techniques are also useful for solid singing, this is really a course for developing more ease in your speaking voice.
  • Is this a Fitzmaurice Voicework® course?
    I’m a certified coach of Fitzmaurice Voicework® so my teachings are always rooted in principles of that specific technique. For example, the modules on vocal support and volume calibration are very influenced by Catherine Fitzmaurice’s teachings around Restructuring™. That said, there is no “Destructuring™” i.e. tremorwork™ in this course, so if you’re looking for a more explicit course in Fitzmaurice Voicework, then I suggest you check out my ongoing class.
