Prof. Borgenheimer‘s language-neutral mini-clinic seeks to help the professional interpreter improve his/her voice quality through discussion and demonstration on aspects of voice training: Intonation and Expressiveness, Articulation, Enunciation, Proper Breathing Techniques and Voice Projection. Participants will learn to use their voices EFFECTIVELY for improved voice QUALITY.

The interpreter’s tool of the trade or “Musical Instrument” is his/her voice, and as such, the interpreter must practice to have an effective voice that is: DISTINCT, INTELLIGIBLE.

Singers LEARN to hit that high note, Athletes PRACTICE to win; Interpreters LEARN voice quality.

During this session, you will learn some simple exercises to help preserve, protect and improve your professional speaking voice.
