ONE VOICE Certificate Course in Integrative Studies

Pearl Studios, NYC

Too often performers are conditioned to think they have a “speaking voice” and a “singing voice.” Yet the voice we use to speak, laugh, cry, shout, scream, yawn and call out is the same voice we use to sing!

Candidates on this certificate course complete two six-day intensives (12 months apart) focusing on an integrative curriculum, along with individually designed modules, over a 12-month period.
