Subject Title
Extending the Actor's Voice

Subject Description
Using the exercises learned in ACV110 students will gain a deeper understanding of their voices - where their voices are free and expressive and also where there are some restrictions due to stress and tension. Work on increasingly complicated and demanding texts will also help in identifying performance stress patterns. Through exposure to various warm-up techniques students will identify, select and personalize warm-ups that can help to adjust to these patterns in the goal to achieve more effective communication of ideas and emotions.
