Course Overview

Mastering How to Speak

As with any profession or trade, it takes time for people to master their craft; voice acting included. A weekend seminar at a famous studio or a weeklong boot camp with a voice coach may be cool, but it probably won't increase your abilities to the point of landing loads of voice gigs. That's why we designed this course with the goal of making sure students see tangible improvements in not just acting, but speaking as a whole.

VA101 is designed to teach students about their vocal instrument and how to play it. Starting out from the basics and diving deep into understanding the different parts, how to control them, and how to train them to ensure its longevity. You will learn about your Voicebox, your articulators, posture, warmup and breathing techniques, consonants, plosives, sibilance, natural articulation, handling a lisp, mic techniques, and so much more!

The best part? This is a live interactive class with a maximum class size of 30 students. The cost for the full 13 classes is $300. That's $23 per session, cheaper (and cooler) than any tutor.

Results

Speech

There is a strong emphasis on speech in this class, with focus on breathing, pause, pronunciation, annunciation, and being comfortable in your own voice. Each week will cover a different topic, with classroom activities and discussion being the highlights of the class.

Stamina

Your voice is a muscle that you flex with your breath. Without proper stamina, voice work becomes more difficult and less fun. You begin to slur your words or feel dizzy. We'll teach you proper techniques with lip trill, rapid breaths and gasp in order grow your muscle.
