Actor/Designated Linklater Voice Teacher Sarah Weatherwax offers a monthly Drop In Voice Class for Actors & Singers.
** 2nd TUESDAY evening of each month Sept., 2016 to June, 2017.**
NEXT CLASS: Tuesday, April 11, 2017, 6:30PM to 8:30PM
A unique environment, this class is both relaxed and professional in its approach to voice for the actor. New performers can develop their skills and experienced performers can re-tune their instruments. Each month offers a complete voice & body warm-up with a slightly different focus. Gently address habitual physical tension and communication habits to free your voice and your acting. Receive specific, individualized guidance.
Focus this month: Resonators Part I.
After a warm-up, which will include some jaw/tongue/soft palate exercises, this class will focus on the lower resonators: chest, mouth, teeth. If time allows, we will explore breath capacity also, in preparation for next month's class focusing on upper resonators.
Although most people utilize perhaps 5 or 6 notes of their mid-range while talking, a free speaking voice can access 3 to 4 octaves. By isolating and warming up specific resonators, your voice will be freer to go where it needs to go to express what you need to express in response to your actor instincts.
