    Bespoke & Customised Training

    Kristin Linklater welcomes groups of people from all walks of life who wish to develop their vocal potential for a particular purpose or simply to gain new skills in communication and expression. We can customize workshops for specific outcomes and for specific groups. A bespoke package can be arranged for groups of 8-14 people over 2-10 days. We can also accommodate individuals seeking intensive periods of private one-to-one voice training with Kristin Linklater. The centre offers total seclusion and is ideal should you need complete privacy or just to get away from the hustle bustle. Here are some examples of training ideas...

    -- Diane Timmerman, Professor of Theatre, Butler University


    The "natural break" in the voice is not a natural break. It is an unnatural break. Your voice knows how to smooth this break out.
