Perceptions around voice: Practical exercise on strengths-based approach; vocal dysphoria and euphoria; authenticity and expression.
Vocal parameters such as; power, source, filter, pitch, resonance, voice onset and quality
Principles of practice and the importance of lived experience: play, repetition, motor learning theory, contrastive practice, hierarchy, feedback
Vocal exploration in social contexts: intonation, expression, nonverbal communication, telephone/online use, presence and working with differences e.g. neurodiversity.
