7) Please replace the current VOCAL COACH page pic of the guy/girl with the attached picture named "2".
Also, please replace the current text under VOCAL COACHING with the following:
No, we’re not a singing class! However there are specific areas in which actors should explore and correct any vocal qualities that inhibit in any way their hiring potential. Keep in mind, your voice identifies YOU in many ways, and is a major part of the psycho/physical link you project to your audience. It’s a vital part of the subtextual projection of who you are. Think voices—Marilyn Monroe, James Earl Jones—how much do their voices tell you in terms of this! Thus it behooves you to make sure you present the most 'commerciable' aspect at your disposal.
What does this involve? At the Vincent Chase Workshop we’re prepared to help you in the following areas:
1) Vocal production:
Many athlete’s training practices involves putting inadvertent pressures on the vocal instrument that inhibit its tone and power and raises the median note around which we all speak to an unacceptable high. Many ladies, otherwise the picture of grace and beauty lose much of it because the excessive nasality in their voices disrupts the whole image. We can help you fix this.
2) Dialect/accent production:
Do you have an accent that limits your acting range? Enable yourself to master the basic American film standard that is most of what is in use on our shows. Don’t fall back on the old panic button “but I’ll lose my personality!” That’s bull. If your personality hinges on your dialect you’re in more trouble than you think!
Conversely, do you need to master a specific accent for a specific role? The Vincent Chase Workshop can help you here as well and, should you be interested, teach you enough on the international phonetic alphabet that you can do much of the process on your own.
Again, call us if you feel you need help on any of this at (323) 450-9424.
