Thursday 27th and Friday 28th July 2017 plus Monday 15th January 2018
The Light, Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ
The Accent Method is a holistic therapy regime designed to co-ordinate respiration, phonation, articulation and resonance to produce clear and well modulated speech. The aim of this course is to set out the rationale, on which the Accent Method is based, to allow delegates to experience the technique themselves and provide them with practical skills and tools to bring into their own area of work.
Maximum 16 places available so early booking is recommended for this popular course
World Voice Day: 16th April every year
