Course (Calgary): Voice class for the Actor – Jane MacFarlane

Voice for the Actor, Jane MacFarlane12 Sessions of “Voice for the Actor” with vocal coach Jane MacFarlane.

This course is an introduction to the nature of voice production and articulation. The emphasis will be on freeing the natural voice as it pertains to performance.

Over the 12 weeks, we will:

  • Identify habits and blocks to the free release of breath through an awareness of the anatomy & physiology of the voice and body.
  • Build from a free release of breath to supported and forward placed sound & voice.
  • Work practically with text of your choosing, to make the transition from the “warm-up” to application in rehearsal and performance.

This program is an in-depth introduction to voice-work for any actor, an ongoing exploration and deepening of voice-work for the professional actor, but is also accessible and open to anyone that requires extensive use of their voice on a daily basis.

Schedule: 12 Sessions, September 12 – November 28, 2016. Mondays – 9:30AM – 11:30AM.
Cost: $275.00.

In October, 2016, we will be continuing to offer both a Junior class for students 9 – 13, and a Senior class for students 14 – 17.

The Senior class will also include more advanced acting skills and choreography.

Classes will include professional instruction in Acting and Voice, and the program will culminate in two youth performances on the set of our mainstage production for their family and friends. They will work on a full set with lights, sounds, and costumes.

Students enrolled in the program gain confidence & aptitude in their singing through learning the basics in choral singing: tuning, breath management, vowel formation, good diction, posture and facial expression using vocal warm-ups, exercises, and homework.  The basics of musical sight reading will be taught, listening skills will be honed, and singing in harmony will be introduced.

The fun, humour and drama of Gilbert and Sullivan is a great way for youth to be introduced to classical music.  Group vocal lessons encourage teamwork and friendship, in a low stress environment!  All students will also have the opportunity to try their hand at solo singing, if they so wish, and the learning environment created will be positive and constructive.
