Teacher in Voice & Speech (Full-time)
The Voice and Speech module teacher is expected to help the actor discover and develop their natural voice for use in contemporary theatre.
The teacher is required to teach exercises and drills based on natural processes for breathing and vocalisation, as well as sufficient theory to help actor-students connect to the complex physiological processes that enable voice and speech.
The primary objective of this module’s learning is to develop a flexible, clear, free and expressive voice, and also an understanding of how the voice works.
A key learning outcome should be measured in students’ capabilities to express themselves easily when speaking in their language of greatest fluency.
Training methodology should also involve the body, breath, voice, speech and text (prose, drama and poetry).

- Teaching the module to Year 1 and Year 2 students according to ITI’s curriculum
- Providing Year 3 students with theoretical and practical guidance for their final-year productions
