Voice coach explores “The Five Elements” at Guild’s June 7 workshop

At the St. Louis Writers Guild’s June 7 workshop, voice coach Sheila Dugan will provide insight into some basic elements writers can use at their next Open Mic night, or anywhere they are called upon to perform written materials aloud.

“The Five Elements” workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Kirkwood Community Center, 111 S. Geyer Rd. in Kirkwood. Free to St. Louis Writers Guild members; $5 for nonmembers.

Sheila is a Master Teacher of Voice and will lead exercises to boost writers’ expressiveness while reading out loud. Additionally, some writers’ work may be workshopped, IF time permits. Bring a couple of pages you’d like help with, and be sure to have a second copy for Sheila.

For 46 years, Sheila has taught singing and public speaking refinement and has provided voice therapy for clients, upon medical referral. Her voice students have appeared in 15 Broadway shows, and have also performed off Broadway, with numerous national tours, and many regional theatre companies. Sheila’s classical voice students have performed at major opera houses and with major symphony orchestras both at home and abroad. She has served as a public speaking coach in the areas of medicine, law and business. For more information, visit her website: www.sheiladugan.com.
