Storytelling Skills: Finding Your Voice
Workshop with Donald Pirie
(Sat 20 May: 10.30am-3.30pm)
Join us for a skills workshop covering all things voice related. Learn how to warm up and look after your voice, exploring your vocal range to create characters and engage an audience. We will also look at dealing with nerves and take a crash course into the fun-filled world of voice overs and voice acting.
Led by LAMDA trained actor Donald Pirie, who is one of the most used voices on the Scottish airwaves in the last 20 years. Donald has recorded hundreds of adverts, narrated TV shows and announced gameshows, voicing animations and games for the likes of the BBC and Netflix. He is also a casting and voice director, working with some of the world’s top talents. He has taught voice workshops at the RCS, the Scottish Parliament, the Citizens Theatre, and he runs a voice over training company.
Our participatory sessions are designed to help you improve your skills and share your experiences with fellow storytelling enthusiasts. This carefully curated workshop programme offers you the chance to work with highly-skilled and experienced artists, giving you guidance on improving your practice and discovering your own talent.
