Voice and Confidence Workshop for Teachers (half day or after school session)

Would you like to feel confident and natural voicing yourself with authority and full self-expression?

Would you like to be a role model for free, confident, and joyful self-expression for your students?

You’ll learn techniques to allow yourself to fully open up and free your voice. Sally’s approach is founded on relaxation and takes you through a series of exercises covering ‘the three r’s of vocal projection’, the five vocal dynamics of full vocal expression, and articulation games to be fully heard. You will be amazed as your inhibitions around voicing yourself are replaced by a sense of the fun and joy in vocal self-expression. You will develop a confident self-expression and uncover your natural, authentic voice.

Benefits include:
  • Enhance your self-esteem and confidence
  • Learn specific techniques to access your clearest, most powerful and natural voice
  • Overcome any inhibitions, fears, and shyness around expressing yourself fully
  • Have fun learning simple call and response voice games to teach your students
  • Develop your creativity and ability to express yourself freely
Sally’s experience as an actress and voice coach adds a unique flavour of fun to the process.
