The teacher, Enzo Curcurù, does not like to define himself as a teacher, but as the coach of the team, making available his twenty years of professional experience "in the field".
Its subject is often confused with orthoepy (the correct pronunciation of a language), but orthoepy is a small part of what will be studied in this course.
The student will learn how to file and correct the dialectal forms that everyone has based on their origin, learning to speak the institutional language that a professional actor must absolutely know. One's own culture, one's own sounds of origin, are a very precious asset that must be preserved and not denied; it is also essential to use a correct pronunciation of Italian if you want to pursue a career in the world of entertainment.
All the mechanisms that allow the production of oral language will be investigated, setting the lesson as a sort of "collective quiz," transforming the subject of study into play. In this way the learning process will become faster, more engaging and fun, allowing the acquisition of information almost unconsciously.
The teacher immediately establishes a relationship of trust that allows us to understand how the student uses his own otolaryngological system. By playing and experimenting with multiple ways, the key will be identified that will allow you to reach those frequencies that make your voice unique.
The lessons include a good part of vocal warm-up and study of orthoepy, leaving much of the time to put into practice the notions learned, with improvisations and readings of texts also proposed by the class.
Once a greater awareness of one's "instrument" has been achieved, the focus will pass on reading techniques, therefore on the understanding of the written word, on the use and identification of the images that form the story and their assembly, in order to be able to reach greater independence in the rendering of the text in a usable and clear flowchart.
We often use a voice that is not ours in everyday communication, using only some of the many resonators that we possess simply out of habit, perhaps out of laziness or shyness.
The objective of this course is precisely to discover one's own voice and the infinite expressive opportunities it possesses, making a real investigation into its use. The voice is the main expressive instrument and making it sound best, in the correct way, revealing the range of its many possibilities will surprise you!
In summary, the training objectives of the course are:
1 - Ability to use a correct pronunciation of the Italian language;
2 - Understanding the possible uses of the voice
