This basic voice and articulation course and accompanying lab is designed to help students improve their speaking voice both onstage and in professions such as teaching, management, marketing, public relations, and law just to name a few. In this course, students will gain an understanding of vocal health and the physical demands placed on the vocal apparatus. Content covered will include the Linklater Vocal Warm Up, study of The International Phonetic Alphabet, and basic dialect (accent training). Students will develop the tools needed to recognize and start to deal with their own individual vocal challenges including sustainability, and moving beyond impediments of all kinds.
