SPEAKING AND SINGING WITH THE SAME VOICE

A WEEKEND INTENSIVE: February 28 – March 2, 2014
 
Joan Melton, PhD, ADVS
 
Friday 6 – 9, Saturday 10 – 5, Sunday 10 – 2
Open Rehearsal of Performance Group 7 – 8:30 PM (optional)
Pearl Studios, 500 8th Avenue, New York, NY 10018
Too often performers are conditioned to think they have a “speaking voice” and a “singing voice.” Yet, in fact, the voice we use to speak, laugh, cry shout, scream, yawn and call out is the same voice we use to sing!
Joan Melton is a pioneer in the integration of singing techniques and voice/movement training for the actor. Her work brings together the worlds of singing and acting training in an approach that is physically energizing, vocally freeing and infinitely practical. She has taught at leading centers of theatre and music in the US, UK, Ireland, Australia and NZ, and has worked as a performer, music director and/or voice and text coach on productions in virtually all media. Joan is a Master Teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework(R), an Associate Artist with New York Classical Theatre, and heads groundbreaking research projects in the US and Australia.
This three-day course is divided into four sessions:
Session I introduces new information and experiential work connecting the technical trainings of actors, dancers and singers across a wide range of genres.
Session II focuses on foundational aspects of technique: alignment, breath management, range, resonance, articulation, and connection, as outlined in One Voice (2nd ed., Waveland 2012).
Session III integrates movement and dance trainings as it explores techniques for extended voice use, including laughing, crying, calling, screaming.
Session IV looks at phrasing for speaking and singing and includes opportunities for individual coaching of monologues, songs, or other performance material.
Please wear clothing that allows you to move easily, e.g., workout attire, have written text available for monologues and scenes and written music available for songs.
Tuition $250, Students $230, payable by cash/money order or online at

Formatting Tips for Writing about SVW™

Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method should have the trademark symbol after the word “Voicework”.

On a Windows computer, it’s Alt+0153 on the number keypad (Make sure Num Lock is on.)

On an Apple computer, it’s Options+2.

For more information, including how to type the symbol on Linux, check out http://fsymbols.com/computer/trademark/

After introducing the full name of the method in an article, you can use the shorter form SVW™, but please include the appropriate symbol. A “(tm)” can suffice, but with a computer, you should be able to use the symbol.

Please note that “Voicework” does not have an s. Lisa Popeil’s Method uses the word “Voiceworks”.
