Investigating the longevity of the ageing voice.
COURSES WITH INSPECTOR VOICE
Your voice is unique, it gives you identity and character and carries your emotions. As many as 33% of people use their voices for their work (apart from singers), and all of us use our voice to socialise and communicate. But are you looking after it as effectively as you care for the rest of your body? There is a wealth of knowledge from sports and voice science research to help tackle typical voice problems with precise tools and techniques. I am a former opera singer turned voice science researcher whose research focused on vocal functionality and underpins my current work and courses. I can help both singers and speakers optimize their vocal function through either group work or individual sessions.
