About the Creative Voice Workshop

Whenever we communicate a story we rely on our individual voices to create a living world for our listeners. To do this we need a voice that is both expressive and authentic. Diane Edgecomb’s unique vocal and physical training helps us to strengthen the connection between the imagination and the voice, increasing its flexibility, expressiveness, range and resonance. Special emphasis is placed on finding your natural and true voice. In a supportive environment we’ll explore new ways to engage your body, your imagination and your own unique voice!

About Diane:

A featured storyteller on National Public Radio at the National Storytelling Festival and the International Storytelling Center, Diane is also the recipient of the national ORACLE award for Storytelling Excellence in the Northeast, five Storytelling World awards and a Parent’s Choice Silver. Her vocal and physical workshops are based on her own creative approach and from training at Boston Conservatory of Music, the National Shakespeare Company, private voice lessons & the ground-breaking work of the Grotowski Theatre Lab.

“A storyteller in the grand tradition, Edgecomb is a virtuoso of the spoken word.” - Publisher’s Weekly

Why Vocal Training?

Spoken word is one of the most challenging forms of performance there is and vocal variety and authenticity is not only helpful but necessary if you are speaking for over an hour. Every single bit of training I have had has added to what I can give to my audience. Learning creative vocal ways deserves its own special day in order to yield real results. Liberate your Voice Find its hidden treasures in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
