    Practice Students


    Our teacher trainees are required to demonstrate their ability to teach the full progression of voice exercises known as Freeing the Natural Voice in the course of a weeklong workshop. They need practice students who can commit to morning classes from 9am to 1pm each day. In addition to the daily group class each practice student will have a personal teacher who will give a private tutorial daily. Private lessons may be scheduled up to 3pm. Lunch of soup and bannocks will be provided.


    Please contact info@linklatervoice.com if you are interested and available for these dates, or if you require more information.

    I use some of the exercises every day. I was recently at a meeting where I could be heard above the hubbub when I chose, when previously I would have had to shout.
