It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It

How often have you heard (or said), “don’t take that tone with me?” In this workshop, students explore the power of voice and how to use it safely and wisely. From there, they will work to create their own unique character using the power of their voice. Other topics addressed in this workshop include stage fright, public speaking, and vocal health.

Requires a group of 10 or more to book. Please contact our Education Department to reserve.
