A participatory course developed from vocal techniques practiced by actors. This course will enable you to discover your true voice, work on exercises to enhance its range,clarity, power and tone colour; allowing you to deliver an engaging presentation with ease. The aim of this course is to introduce you to the opportunities of improved vocal projection and the benefits that this brings.
