After its very successful introduction two years ago, we pleased to present what has become one of our most popular courses.

Experienced teachers are well aware of the crucial rôle that the tongue plays in effective diction but many are less aware of its importance in two other core vocal skills: accessing the entire range and controlling acoustics.

Tension in the tongue musculature is the cause of many vocal problems but the lack of sensation in the tongue root in particular can make dealing with this tension extremely difficult. Knowing what to do once the problem has been correctly identified is another skill.

This day will identify common problems for which the tongue is directly responsible and offer practical help in overcoming these in a variety of commonly encountered situations from the teaching studio to the rehearsal room and differing performance environments.

Special attention will also be given to the training and acquisition of speech and diction skills for both speaking and singing.

Topics covered to include:

·      Review of anatomy of the tongue

·      Tongue tension and its effect on vocal function

·      How the tongue to contributes to vowel and tone equalisation

·      Isolation of the different tongue muscles

·      Focusing the tone

·      Practical speech & diction

·      Short masterclass

Suitable for: Those new to the Model, anyone who working with the voice; singing teachers, professional singers, students and amateurs; voice, speech & drama teachers; actors. Suitable for all styles of voice, singing & speaking.
