Now Enrolling: Summer Actor’s Voicework Program

Our Fitmaurice Voicework Summer Session is now enrolling!

  • June 22nd – July 18th
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7PM to 10PM

Held twice weekly, our Fitzmaurice Voice Class taught by Michael Yurchak has been a favorite among our LA acting students for years.

emas52_2This workshop will introduce students to the fundamental elements of Fitzmaurice Voicework® that explores the dynamics between the body, breath, voice, the imagination, language and presence.

It is a physical process that is designed to promote an awareness of the body, spontaneous and free breathing, and healthy vocal expression. It is a helpful tool for actors to find their impulses  and to expand their imaginative potential.

The workshop will use text to learn  how structure can enhance the vocal freedom and provide clarity and connection to text. All students will be required to bring in 16-20 lines of memorized Shakespeare.

Physical Voice Workshop – Time is Running Out

What you say, and how you speak convey two different meanings.

The upcoming physical voice class at the Elizabeth Mestnik studio of LA, delves deep into voice training, to help actors and actresses nail the character being played.

On another note, procrastination can sure place a dent on many an actor’s career. This summer, with just a few days and 3 spots left, serious-about-success actors and actresses can take advantage of the upcoming voice workshop.

The class runs between July 5th and August 6th,  every week, with the full schedule and tuition accessible here.

The workshop is ideal for pairing with the Summer Meisner Technique Intensive. However, as an independent course, it can do wonders to how a message is portrayed – with one’s voice alone.

Acting coach Elizabeth Mestnik, has trained numerous actors successfully for voice, Meisner, the scene study, and a slew of other acting techniques.

The voice workshop is ideal for both voice and stage actors, as students learn voice techniques to master a message.
