    Linklater Voice Designation Programme

    The Part I teacher training along with its sister Part II workshop straddles two years of professional development and constitutes the only endorsed and authentic training for voice professionals to teach the Linklater Voice technique to others. By completing the Part I and Part II Workshops with Kristin Linklater you can become a Designated Linklater Teacher and lead your own Workshops in the Method plus use the technique in other educational and performance settings. Part I is scheduled for 31st July – 20th August 2016, Part II summer 2017 (dates to be confirmed).

    These workshops are not designed to teach you the technique - you must be fully proficient and personally engaged with Linklater Voice before making your application.

    Do you meet the prerequisites for Teacher Training?

    2017 - Dates, location and fee to be confirmed.

    There is a £75.00 + Vat (if applicable) audition fee to cover the costs of hosting the audition in London and the fee must be paid on receipt of invoice. This fee is non-refundable even if you are unsuccessful in this last element of assessment. If you do not attend the audition after making your application then, this is also non-refundable.  

    If you are traveling from Outside the EU or for any reason cannot attend the audition please email the KLVC team and they will do their best to make alternative arrangements for you to audition. It is, however, at the sole discretion of Kristin Linklater whether any audition candidates are allowed to audition out with the weekend already arranged.

    We understand that Training to become a designated Linklater Teacher is a substantial financial commitment. We only ask for your audition fee now and we are willing to offer a monthly instalment plan to spread the costs of your training from the date of acceptance through to the completion of your Part I and onwards for Part II in 2017.
