The Fun Art and Science of Resonance in Speaking: Laughing, Coughing, and Throat-Clearing

Pitch, resonance (tone) and inflection (the rise and fall of the voice in speech) are all components of voice and speech. Developing a resonance that is congruent with a person’s gender identity is perhaps the most elusive but important of the three. This workshop will provide the speech and voice science behind resonance (tone), as well as practical exercises and analysis based in science and performance voice that will allow participants to investigate how to manipulate and change their own resonance (tone). For a little extra fun, participants will learn the art of laughter, coughing, and throat-clearing confidently in their gender identity!
