With the start of Spring Term, beginning the week of March 30, until we are able to resume classes at the Studio, the following Speech 1 classes will be held online via Zoom Conferencing. More classes will be added to the list in the coming days. Please check back soon:
Speech 1 with Joy Coronel | Tuesdays, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Speech 1 with Craig Dolezel | Saturdays, 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Drawing upon Knight Thompson Speechwork, Level 1 Speech is designed to develop your awareness of the physiological components and physical actions of speech. You will learn speech anatomy, with exploration and play through the vocal tract. The class will make a careful study of all the possible consonant actions and experiment with oral postures. You will begin to explore an international range of possible speech sounds, developing the ability to perceive and experience shades of difference. These fundamental practices will be useful to both native and non-native American speakers.
