The Actors Centre

Complete Vocal Technique for Actors and Singers

WHAT IS IT? For singers, actors and public speakers, CVT provides an acoustic science-based, clear and efficient approach to producing all the sounds the human voice can make, in a HEALTHY way. From resonant, rich tones for voice-overs, to heavy metal screams, CVT provides tools to access a myriad of vocal colours. HOW WILL IT WORK? In a dynamic group setting, you will be presented with a fresh perspective on how the voice works, where you can try out new sounds, refresh your technique, ask any burning questions you might have about your voice and enjoy a taster one-to-one lesson, helping you get on track with your vocal and performance goals. This workshop is suitable for those who have worked with CVT before and newcomers to the technique. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? You will leave the session with a new toolkit of quick and reliable ways to access different voice qualities, dynamics and effects. This allows you to focus on artistry and expression on stage, or in the studio, knowing that your voice will always deliver what you need. You will also leave with a deeper understanding of the voice as an instrument, removing fears or doubts about your vocal abilities. Price: £35.
