Help your words come off the page clearly, dynamically, and authentically. Working with a vocal coach and audio engineer, students will first get comfortable using a microphone for studio recordings and live readings. Next, they'll practice reading material in front of a microphone and learns tips for scoring their text and using their voices in a way that helps their stories come to life. At the end of the three-hour session, students will walk away with a recording of their individual coaching sessions.
