The Voice as Professional Instrument

EXECUTIVE TRAINING

More and more, these days, the professional must convey credibility, empathy, firmness and concision in his speech. You need to possess skills and abilities that give you a competitive advantage in the labor market.

  • GROUP TRAINING

    Enhance your company’s corporate image by improving staff communication skills.
  • INDIVIDUAL TRAINING

    Customized training to meet your specific need.

THE ACTOR'S VOICE

Voice work is an extremely important part of the acting technique. As an actor, your voice is your instrument, your way to express and release emotions. The binomials, voice and body, must be in tune and authentic to establish an immediate connection with the audience.
Theatre, cinema and TV all need different voice intensities, physiognomy, body language, and positioning in relation to the audience.

Theatre demands greater voice intensity. Actors must have the ability to project their voice to reach the global space of the theatre, even during an intimate scene. One of the greatest difficulties in this area is speaking loud enough without losing vocal and emotional subtleties.

TV and cinema require less projection, but microphones amplify everything, including noisy breathing and sibilant phonemes. Postures and gestures need to be more restrained while still matching physiognomic expression and the overall aesthetic: any exaggeration undermines the actor’s performance.

Remember, voice can help or hinder free expression: a good vocal warm up always benefits your performance.
