Saturday, September 24, from 9:30am - 4:30pm PT
Using principles and techniques from Fitzmaurice Voicework® and Organic Intelligence®, participants in this one-day workshop will learn the foundations of voice technique leading to a freer voice, body, and presence.
Why Join my One-Day Voice Workshop?
This workshop is intended to be a gateway into a voice practice. If you're an actor or singer who doesn't already have a consistent voice practice in place, this workshop will give you the foundational elements to begin.
The truth is, if you're an actor and you don't have strong voice technique and a routine practice in place, you're limiting your work. Voicework doesn't just help you sound better, it also helps you feel better. Voicework will help you feel more at ease in your body and breath so that you can authentically connect to your character and text. And, of course, voicework also solves the practical need to be heard.
In this one-day workshop, you'll learn:
The Fitzmaurice Voicework® Destructuring Sequence: a voice and body warm-up sequence for releasing muscular tension, leading to more ease and freedom in your breathing and a fuller speaking voice.
The Fitzmaurice Voicework® Structuring technique: tools for supporting your voice so that you can be effortlessly heard, whether you're on-camera or on-stage, while feeling connected to your authentic self.
Organic Intelligence® techniques and tools for grounding you when your voice becomes shaky or overwhelmed by nerves or anxiety.
You'll also fulfill the prerequisites necessary for joining my Ongoing Voice Class so you can continue your practice after the completion of the workshop.
