Event description

Description

Are you looking after your voice? Do you really know how to?

Teachers like actors are professional voice users but unlike actors do not always get any kind of training to help them care for their voice. For teachers the voice is a very powerful instrument for control and for setting an immediate classroom ethos. For drama teachers the voice is even more valuable as a source of signalling mood, commitment, persuasion and for working in role effectively. But do you know how to get the best out of your voice?

This is a practical workshop which traces the theory and practice of voice. From breathing through to articulation you will learn how your voice works, how it can be damaged, how to look out for danger signs and how to gain the most out of your voice while putting the least effort into it.
This is an introduction to the mechanics of the artistic voice and provides training on two levels:
-it provides an awareness of how to operate your own voice in the classroom to full effect;
-it is a robust foundation for more creative vocal work with your classes.

Amanda Kipling is Senior Lecturer leading the PGCE Drama programme at Goldsmiths, where she has worked for twelve years. She is Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and presently working towards her doctorate at the University of Chester.
