Course: Theatre Arts 10A-
Beginning Voice Development for the Stage
TEXT: Arthur Lessac's 3rd edition of The Use &
Training of the Human Voice
Beginning Voice Development for the Stage is an entry-level class for
the student who wishes to find the bigger, fuller voice within.
Whether that student is an actor, businessman or foreign exchange
student, the creative approach used in the Lessac Technique makes the
journey, exciting, rewarding and successful. The emphasis on
healthy speech free from habitual tension is instrumental in
transforming the voice.
This is a performance class and students are expected to be actively
involved in daily warm-ups, explorations, rehearsals and four
performing events throughout the semester. The student can expect
improved diction, deeper, more full tones that enhance the color and
depth to the voice and greater intelligibility. We use monologues
to explore and experiment with and, as a result, the student will see
how the technique greatly enhances character development.
