This unit is for anyone who would like to use their voice more effectively. It will benefit students whose career path requires confident vocal use. Topics will include vocal projection and stamina, diction and articulation, posture, phonation, physical and vocal warm-ups, and vocal health. Through unit material, spoken and pitched vocal exercises, students will explore the physical structures of the voice and body to increase knowledge and awareness of the coordination required for efficient and effective vocal use.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Use their own voices with increased confidence and improved vocal control;
2. Understand the physical structures involved in using the voice;
3. Demonstrate spoken and pitched projection;
4. Demonstrate control of physical structures involved in articulation and clear diction; and
5. Understand the relationship between posture and voice production.
