The Healthy Aging Voice
Monday, February 26 | 1:00pm | Houghton Room | No Charge | Pre-Registration Required
Course Facilitator: Lorraine DiSimone
Since the beginning of time, husbands and wives have been concerned about being heard by their partner. Asking, “Is he/she listening to me?” “Am I being ignored or does he/she have hearing loss?” The answer could lie in one or all the above! Or – it may be part of the aging voice.
Let’s face it – the voice, like other muscles and parts of the body, change as we age. The Healthy Aging Voice workshop is for anyone interested in learning how to strengthen and protect their vocal cords. Attendees will learn how to be heard in a better way, without getting physically tired or feeling hoarse. The elements of resonance, pitch variation, volume, articulation, breath support, concentration, and focus will be included.
The format will include content presentation, discussion, as well as fun, easy and safe exercises. Culminating with everyone receiving a “tool kit” for speaking. Registration is limited to 20 participants. This 75-minute workshop will be led by Lorraine DiSimone, skilled vocal coach and trainer.
