With Dom Coyote and Aimée Leonard of WorkYourVoice
Performer/Composer Dom Coyote of Kneehigh and Aimée Leonard, Voice/Singing Coach for London Southbank and Newcastle Universities, have joined forces to create brand new voice studio, WorkYourVoice. They help singers, actors and voice professionals develop versatile, healthy and authentic voices for performance.
Dom and Aimée have cooked up a special workshop in collaboration with Kneehigh.
We know now that for the foreseeable future, much of the theatre industry will be making shows outdoors. Performers will need their voices to be fit, healthy and immensely strong. This three hour workshop will give you exercises, techniques and strategies that can transform your vocal performance.
Dom and Aimée’s skill and experience as voice coaches and performers will help you find a whole new level of projection, clarity and versatility, whilst keeping your voices healthy and strong, so that when the time comes, your voice will be ready for anything.
If you have access needs please book before Monday 5th October so we have time to make the necessary arrangements.
