Fitzmaurice Voicework® is a comprehensive approach to voice training. It includes, as needed, work on breathing and the body, resonance, speech, dialects, impromptu and prepared public speaking, text, singing, voice with movement, and presence. While the training is specific, it is offerred in such a way that it is compatible with other approaches. This unique path to the mastery of vocal functioning was originated by Catherine Fitzmaurice.

Terrel Presence Training®

Classes, Private sessions

 

Terrel Presence Training® is a technique that assists the performer in establishing presence onstage, experiencing and allowing the audience into the present moment, connecting more effectively and at a deeper level with others onstage and with the audience, and helping actors become more comfortable with being “seen”.  It is a series of exercises that can be taught in sequence or utilized specifically to achieve particular objectives.  This way of working is well suited to developing palpable actor chemistry and the physical and energetic ensemble adhesiveness that creates physical history and depth for actors/characters.  

 

Terrel Presence Training® deals with the core of what makes us human: with our ability to connect with other people; physical, emotional, and spiritual contact; movement; and availability as an actor and a human being. 

 

Terrel Presence Training® helps the actor ground the body and the voice.  It increases one’s physical and vocal power.  Taking the room and taking the stage become easier.  Reaching into and beyond the camera lens becomes easier to play with and ‘do on purpose’.  It gives the actor a sense of control and a technique for managing their own physicality and energy.
