Switching on: the voice warm up

You have invested in your studio; been part of its design. It meets not only your own needs for each job of work that you undertake but also the expectations in any agreement with your range of client. It has to. Everything needs protection and maintenance. You update it from time to time. Your focus is not only on what you need it to be but also on managing the expectations of your clients. I have asked some of you about the essential routines and even rituals that you go through before recording begins. Answers include: 1) switching the electricity to ‘on’, 2) entering the booth, 3) opening up the software, 4) putting on the headphones, 5) running a test for the microphone. The studio is ‘warmed up’and ready to deliver. Maybe you have the same dedication when it comes to your voice, or maybe you would like to learn more and set aside time to keeping your ‘key communication asset’ primed for the best results.

Review of Yvonne’s Intensive Workshop by Rachael Beresford

You Wouldn’t Run a Marathon Without Training Created: 13 January 2016 Vocal Intensive workshop with Yvonne Morley – Rachael Beresford My primary motive for attending this workshop was to have some ‘refresher’ training. In brutal honesty I hadn’t attended any concentrated vocal training on my voice since drama school over a decade (and a bit) ago. Yes I did warm ups, yes I read books and enjoyed tongue twisters in my childish glee, but purely training, exercising and strengthening my instrument I hadn’t dedicated time to specifically. When I found out that VON were running a vocal intensive workshop with […]

A Voice For Richard – published article

First published in ‘The Ricardian Bulletin – The magazine of the Richard III Society’ March 2015 A VOICE for Richard YVONNE MORLEY In over 30 years of training voices for actors and public speakers alike, I never cease to marvel at the power of the spoken word. The written word is powerful enough in its own right but how those words sound, when spoken by the one who thought them, can often take things to new levels and even help or hinder relationships with others. For example, we can use a simple greeting like ‘Hello’ to very different effect (perhaps […]

Kill Me Now (Park Theatre) “It’s to the credit of these able-bodied actors, and thanks too to movement director Fergus Early and voice and accent coach Yvonne Morley, that their physical efforts do not distract from their characters’ emotional travails.”

Can you hear me at the back?

Recently, Yvonne was featured in an article written by Catherine Paver on tesconnect website. It talks about the importance of vocal training for teachers. “Right, class. Quiet – cough – QUIET! Croak.” Vocal training is not a mandatory part of initial teacher training, but it should be: teachers use their voices for more hours in the day than actors and singers, yet we barely notice that voice until it starts to hurt. Vocal training coughs outside the door of the white paper, The Importance of Teaching, but only gets close to a mention. The document sees “the teacher as our society’s […]
