I thought I would share some excellent news with you! Voices.com is providing promotional sponsorship for the Midwest Voice Conference
in Chicago, IL. The conference takes place on Saturday August 9, 2008 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Here's some more information about what you'll get out of the conference.
The objectives of the conference are:
Principles of Speaking Voice Restorative Therapy
๏ Learn basic principals of abdominal breathing to support voice production
๏ Understand the role of head resonance in amplifying voice and reducing the work of speaking
๏ Learn about the role of voice/ rest/conservation of the voice/general voice care: vocal hygiene guidelines
Common Medical Diagnoses that affect the Voice: Allergies, Post-Nasal Drip, LPR, Hormone Related, Colds
๏ Learn about how allergies create drainage that irritates the vocal folds
๏ Learn how acid reflux is more than heartburn and can harm the vocal folds
๏ Learn about how estrogen, progesterone and testosterone affect the voice and how disorders with the hormones produce voice changes
๏ Learn how to support your immune system and fight a cold
The cost is only $35 for the entire day
, and if you ask me, you'll be getting a bargain when you think about the access you'll have to all of the experts in the room, what you'll be learning, and the people you'll meet (lunch and other food is included too, so booyah to that!).
Dr. H. Steven Sims
will be giving a special presentation in the afternoon. You may know him here at Voice Over Universe. If not, be sure to add him as your friend.
You can register for this event online at the conference website and if you have additional questions, you are welcome to contact Colleen whose email address is also provided on the MidwestVoiceConference.com
P.S. I will be there so if you are planning to attend the Midwest Voice Conference please let me know so that we can meet up!
