Ever been told to "support your voice", "speak from your diaphragm" or "free your voice" but found the advice confusing? Have you ever thought there must be a more straightforward and reliable approach to using your voice well? Well, there is.
This workshop aims to demystify and simplify the process of achieving an expressive and efficient speaking voice through a practical exploration of basic vocal function.
