Specialist Courses & Workshops

SPECIALIST COURSES AND WORKSHOPS

 

Voice for business

18Yrs + Group & Solo LEssons AVAILABLE 

At CentreStage we offer Voice for Business lessons which encompass work on:

  • Resonance, to create a richer and fuller sound
  • Intonation, for an engaging pitch range
  • Energy, for a positive presence when speaking to both individuals and groups
  • The body, ensuring that posture and body language allow for good voice use
  • Accent softening, allowing the speaker to be clearly understood when speaking English
  • Breath, to help to ground the speaker in order to centre and focus the voice

Whilst the Voice for Business classes can cover accent softening, we also offer this as a primary discipline. Accent softening is for those who would like to sound more like a native English speaker (either in a British or American accent, depending upon personal preference). Our Voice Coach, Laura, will assess the needs of each speaker and organise lessons based upon individual requirements. Lessons could include work on:

  • Tone of voice, for a quintessentially British / American sound
  • Phonetics and diction, in order to understand in detail where and how each sound is made, to build an authentic and clear accent
  • Intonation and stress, for correct emphasis on words and syllables

Voice for Teachers

18Yrs + Group & Solo LEssons AVAILABLE

We have recently launched a Voice for Teachers course aimed at professional voice users in schools. This course is structured to coach teachers and other school staff on how to use the voice effectively and efficiently, in order to exude confidence but also maintain vocal  health throughout the school year. The course can be led as an intensive workshop or a weekly class, and focuses on the following:

  • Resonance, to create a richer and fuller sound
  • Intonation, for an engaging pitch range
  • Energy, for a positive presence when speaking to both individuals and groups
  • The body, ensuring that posture and body language allow for good voice use
  • Breath, to help to ground the speaker in order to centre and focus the voice
  • Vocal health, focusing on efficient and safe voice use, in order to prevent vocal damage

Teachers and school staff are professional voice users - people who rely on their voice to do their job - and therefore knowing how to take care of the voice is of vital importance. So much so, that it has been proven that teachers who have completed specialist voice courses take less time off work due to sickness. This course will give advice and information on appropriate strategies for vocal efficiency, both when vocally healthy and when suffering from common colds and so on.

Each term concludes in a sharing of work, by our students, to family and friends, to demonstrate the choreographic skills and techniques they have been workshopping.
