This is a practical workshop which traces the theory and practice of voice.

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.
