Our tailor made one to one coaching in elocution is designed for people who wish to soften their accents, improve their vocal technique and develop their vocal skills in order to communicate more effectively in both the business and social environments.
Typical two hour Elocution Coaching Session
Elocution Coaching Objectives
You will be encouraged to discuss your thoughts and aspirations with your elocution coach, and in particular, communicate what you hope to gain from these elocution sessions.
Vocal Warm Up
This includes vowel and consonant practice, and general exercises for the agility of the vocal organs such as lips, tongue and lower jaw.
For vocal agility and fun. A great way to exercise the jaw and facial muscles.
You will be asked to read a narrative, and certain observations on your voice will then be noted and discussed.
Breathing and Posture Exercises
These elocution exercises will depend on your specific needs, and will be worked and improved upon in each session. In addition, you will learn the art of Creative Visualization and aspects of the Alexander Technique, which will, with some practice, induce deep and relaxed breathing, thus greatly improving the quality of the voice.
Particular Vocal Exercises
These elocution exercises will address your specific needs in vocal areas such as tone, pitch, clarity, variety etc.
This is not only stimulating and entertaining, but is also a very useful way of developing good speech. Using different characters, and other vital techniques, we will help you produce a wider vocal range. Thus enabling you to express yourself articulately, with a voice that is richer, more original and attractive to the listener.
