Making it stick: Strategies for maintaining a feminine voice

Learning how speak in a more feminine way is one thing, but keeping it going is another. It can be challenging to speak for a longer period of time or speak across a variety of real-life situations with other people. Factors such as whom you are speaking to, what you are speaking about, or where you are speaking can influence how easy or hard it is to use your voice. This hands-on workshop outlines how to maintain a feminine voice across longer utterances and different social situations. Using pitch-raising, we will demonstrate, practice, and discuss techniques and strategies.

Intended audience(s)

Anyone interested in increasing their feminine presentation to any degree along the gender spectrum.
