The Stories Aloud workshop aims to develop participants’ skills in reading aloud in an engaging manner so as to obtain and hold audience attention, whether reading to groups or individuals. This workshop covers all areas of reading aloud either to children or to adults, including vocal tone, clarity, pausing, emphasis, rhythm and shaping a spoken piece. Participants will get plenty of practice in reading pieces of their own as well as other participants’ pieces. In addition, they will receive constructive feedback on their performances.
