The Workshop trainer is a professional singer, a vocal coach, and a Polish-Italian interpreter, Agnieszka Kledzik.

The Workshop has been created for professional interpreters who work with their voice, feeling a considerable burden on the brain as the same time. The offer is also dedicated to others working with their voice and willing to improve their vocal range. 

For two hours and without a hurry, we work with a trainer in a small group inside a modern, friendly, and full of energy place. We do have time.

The interpreters use in their work huge amounts of memory resources and implement improvisation techniques. They need to process the text they hear immediately and to demonstrate their anticipatory abilities, keeping the highest level of linguistic correctness at the same time. Such a strain increases the risk of the whole body tension, especially when the interpretation prolongs or is made by one interpreter only. The muscle tonus affects mostly the head and the neck zone, the closest surroundings of the larynx – a voice formation organ – as well as the breathing muscles area: the diaphragm, the dorsal and abdominal muscles. 

Therefore, an interpreter must be aware and conscious of basic voice hygiene and pay attention to a correct and free, thus physiological, voice emission. 

Our Workshop – planned as a two-hour practical excersise block – teaches you these.

Apart from professional interpreters, we kindly invite teachers, speakers, actors, lead singers and all people wishing to improve the quality of their voice emission to take part in the Workshop.
