Voice-Movement Skills and the Dimension of PLAY!

with Dr. Joan Melton
Thursday 2nd February 2023 5-7pm GMT

This course will be recorded and sent out to all pre-registered participants to watch in their own time.
Due to licensing laws, we are unable to sell this course retrospectively.

This workshop explores the voice-movement relationship in breath management, the vocal tract, voice qualities, pitch range, articulation and phrasing (singing and speaking), and extended voice use.

Then participants are invited to “physicalize” a spoken or sung text—playfully allowing the body to lead—before doing a bit of the text in performance mode.

Questions, requests and comments are welcome, and muting is not required!

Please dress comfortably and have floor space available for movement and exercise.

If you would like a certificate of attendance for this event, please send us an email.

Attend this course for as little as £22.00.
