Keeping in mind the ever-increasing demand for Radio Jockeying, and to cater to the needs of growing FM channels and other voice businesses, the Sutradhar School of Acting is organizing a 3-week voice workshop called Pehchan, from 22nd October, at the school's premises in Himayathnagar.
The workshop is open for corporate employees, aspiring radio jockeys, students, budding voice actors, housewives... in fact, for all those who would want to take up voice-lending as an avocation or even as a profession. Those aiming at call center jobs could also benefit hugely from this course. Training will be provided in voice-over, narration, dubbing, anchoring, radio jockeying and video jockeying.
Those wanting to improve their diction or talaffus in Urdu and Hindi can also benefit from this workshop. The course is also designed to help improve one's communication skills through various speech and voice exercises, yoga, pranayam, concentration exercises, voice modulation, voice throwing, generation of sound through omkar, and script- and play-reading.
There is no age bar and no specific qualification required to be a participant except that you should be able to communicate effectively in Hindi, Telugu or English. It would be good if you can speak all three languages.
It is proposed to have two separate batches, one from 9:00am to 10:30am and the other from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. There would be a total of 15 sessions of at least one and a half hour each.
At the end of the workshop, the participants will be exposed to a digital studio environment to have first-hand knowledge of the equipment and to get familiar with the use of a microphone in a studio ambience. Their voices will be recorded and stored in a database as samples, for outsourcing.
The fee for the course is Rs. 3,000 per participant. The workshop will also serve as a refresher course for those who have earlier done a similar workshop with the school. They could repeat the same for a fee of Rs. 2,000.
