Course content

Professional Voice Studies is an exciting and uniquely designed course offering students the opportunity to undertake specialised voice studies training within an internationally acclaimed theatre school setting. (In the UK the terms course and programme / program are used interchangeably)

The course is eclectic in its approach, drawing on a range of methodologies and practitioners. Bristol Old Vic Theatre School produces professional standard productions at a range of theatres in the South West of England and students will have the opportunity to work with the actors on these productions as part of their studies.

There will be opportunities within the curriculum for collaboration with students on other courses including the MA Drama Directing, MA Performance Design and Professional Acting courses.

The aim of the course is to produce self-reflective, entrepreneurial voice practitioners who will work within traditional fields, or go on to develop the practice into new areas. It is envisaged that graduates will seek careers in a range of voice related roles such as voice and/or dialect coaches for theatre, TV, film or radio; voice directors for theatre productions; voice teachers within conservatoires or university acting departments; voice and presentation skills coaches for business or other non-performers; voice artists for radio, audio books, animated productions; or voice artists within the fields of performance or contemporary art.

The course includes theoretical aspects of voice work including: vocal anatomy and physiology, and phonetics. The emphasis, however, will be on the practical applications of theory. This will include work to develop the potential of the student’s own voice; coaching and teaching practice; and encouraging the student to research their own areas of interest. This research will conclude with a ‘practice-as-research’ project.
