Finding Your Authentic Voice

(Trova la voce vera)

Course description:

This course is geared toward, actors, teachers and public speakers, as well as English language learners who wish to clarify their accent. This course will develop an individualized practice to support the voice through breath, posture, diction, emotional expression, gesture, and content.

Teaching approach:

Natural use of the voice is a fundamentally pleasurable experience for both the speaker and the audience. Finding Your Authentic Voice is unique in that it focus' on the pleasure of speech in order to make the best of one's vocal expression and native talent.

Course program:

Each lesson begins with vocal exercises that build upon the previous lesson in order to develop a personalized practice that will safely support a strong, sonorous, flexible voice. We will then work with text or improvisation, depending upon the needs of the students, to hone their public voices.

Hello my name is Diane. I am a native of Honolulu, Hawaii. I have been residing in San Francisco, California since 1989. I am a theatre artist with credits as an actor, director, playwright, dancer, choreographer, mask maker, manager, teacher and technician. I have been sharing my art and craft with both young and adult students for nearly 30 years. I am available as a coach for actors, solo-artists, directors, and public speakers. I am also available as a script doctor for your writings for stage and screen. Whether you have a well developed craft and are taking your art to the next level, or are an aspiring performer or public speaker, I am available for both private and group lessons, as well as consultations.
