Voice actors are vocal athletes. We use our voices in extraordinary ways every day, so knowing how to properly take care of our instrument is as essential as a good mic, but many of us don't take that few minutes to warm up and cool down and risk injury. Here's your chance to change that! In this session you will learn the quick tools you can use on a daily basis to warm up and when and why to cool down your voice. These will include stretching, breathing, vocal warm ups, self-massage and straw phonation. We will also dig into some truths and myths around food and drink to be avoided, common injuries, how to recover from illness or injury more quickly and how to choose a character voice wisely.
