Linklater Workshop and The Two Pence Lab

Join Two Pence Artistic Director and Designated Linklater Voice Teacher Trainee Tom Wells at The Acting Studio Chicago for this empowering class!

This course is based on Kristin Linklater’s methodology laid out in her book Freeing the Natural Voice. Work will focus on becoming aware of personal physical/psychological blocks that inhibit the human instrument, and then removing those blocks.

Through group floor and standing work, demonstration and exercises students will begin to establish, register, and free their connection to breath, develop resonance and explore range, learn to release jaw, tongue, and throat tensions and build vocal strength.

Explore, discover, and reveal the depth of your own vibrant human instrument.

Course Runs 6 Sundays, 1-3:30pm beginning September 29th.
