Singing Training for the Actor!
Our voice is our own unique way to resonate with the external world. However, the voice is perhaps a forgotten part of ourselves that needs our attention. Whether you are in general conversation, working on your lines for a scene, preparing for an audition, or giving a public speech, tuning this instrument is crucial for optimal performance.
Developing a more powerful, confident voice requires craft and process. In this course the student will be introduced to practical techniques, and challenged to perform in a safe and motivating environment.
And yes, there will be song! This is a singing class, but with the actor in mind. Whether you have always wanted to sing, or you just need to find your actor’s voice, come and enjoy this unique journey and explore the fundamentals of the voice through a holistic, musical approach.

“Hao Ting is as dynamic as he is effective as a true voice coach and singing professional. His unique ability to focus and develop your particular strengths while improving on your specific challenges as a singer is first class. His strengths as a teacher give you a safe and comfortable environment in which to grow, while simultaneously challenging all to discover new-found abilities in singing mind and body. The combination of his breathing technique exercises and individualized live song sessions gives the opportunity for each person to find their hidden voice. His passion for bringing out the best in each student comes from his own solid repertoire of high performance and love of music. I recommend Hao wholeheartedly to anyone who always wanted to bring out the singer in themselves but were too afraid to try. You won’t believe how you will sing.”

“I think the class was a great opportunity for me to express myself through voice. It was very scary, nerve wracking at first, but everyone was so nice and welcoming, especially Hao! He made me feel at ease, was extremely patient with everyone and created a very supportive environment. Hao is an excellent teacher, singer, and performer. Overall, it was a very rewarding and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend the class for anyone wanting to improve the power of their voice and their instrument. Thank you Hao!”
