Friday 5th June​
12.00PM SGT & MYR (UTC+8) / 2PM AEST

​When used effectively, an instructor's voice has the power to connect, motivate, support and take participants on a musical journey. Right now though, your voice is probably deconditioned from the months spent without the vocal projection required from teaching. In the same way that we need to work on our physical fitness to prepare to teach classes again, now is the time to start working on rebuilding your vocal fitness. ​ ​


In this webinar, you'll learn the techniques used by professional voice coaches to help actors, performers and singers build their vocal fitness so they can deliver powerful and memorable vocal performances; and the different ways to use your voice to coach, support and motivate your classes as they work on regaining their own physical fitness after months away from classes.​ ​

Webinar Speakers:​ Pete Peterson & Sam Winter​ ​



Pete is a Presenter in the Les Mills GRIT™, SPRINT™ and BODYPUMP® programs and a facilitator for Advanced Training.
