Reading Aloud

The power of vocal expression in setting tone, creating pace, communicating emotion, and highlighting what in the text is most important can transform the task of reading aloud into a meaningful experience. Being able to communicate this vocally enables audiences to comprehend, connect, and enjoy what’s being communicated. When a reader taps into their imagination and expression, they connect better to the children who are listening, and the children connect to them, to the story, and can better connect reading aloud to being a pleasurable, worthwhile experience. That’s the purpose in my set of workshops designed to help readers–especially adults– tap into the expression that they already have but perhaps have never realized is theirs, may have never consciously considered, or may simply need encouragement and a reminder of what expressive options they have.
