The Craft of Speaking I:  Vocal Freedom

Listed in: Theater and Dance, as THDA-32H

Faculty

Ronald Dean Bashford (Section 01)

Description

A beginning studio course in the development of voice for speaking. Students develop range and tone through regular physical exercises in relaxation, breathing technique, placement, and presence. Individual attention focuses on helping each student develop the the physical, mental, and emotional self-awareness needed for expressive vocal production. Practice is oriented toward acting for the stage, but students with a primary interest in public speaking, teaching, or improved interpersonal communication will find this course valuable. Three class meetings per week. A modicum of reading and written reflection is required.

Fall semester.  Professor Bashford
