SFB 1313 offered a special course for its female members on January 22nd and 23rd. Julia Döbele held a two-day seminar which gave the five participants a chance to develop their speaking voice and become aware of their own presence. A mix of group exercises and a lot of individual work lead to a higher awareness of sounds in general and the own voice in particular.
Besides receiving background information about applied vocal physiology, the participants had many opportunities to practice by making different sounds. This short introduction to functional voice training and its benefits helped the participants to raise their confidence when speaking and was a welcome variety to scientific courses and everyday work.
