After 4 DAYS OF VOICE COACHING you will find your strengths and improve your weak spots through these key points:
Learn to map out your audition preparation, decipher the dialogue, investigate the words and expressions you are struggling with, and get valuable tools for working on your own.
Explore the many places from where your voice can be heard. Where to place the voice in your body for this specific character?
Learn to reduce your accent, no matter where you come from, and sound more fluent in American English. You will work on pronunciation - vowels, consonants, the “th” and other sounds, rhythm and linking, and intonation.
You will question: why does the character say this, and therefore how? You will explore the character’s culture, objectives and the subtext of the scene, and Peggy will help you to better understand how to express it.

The first hour the workshop will be about YOU and your GOALS. The purpose this is to put your achievements and goals for the New Year into words - What have you achieved this year, where do you go from here and what are your goals for 2020? Present yourself and tell your goals, aspirations and your story to INSPIRE the rest of the team. Your thoughts and actions create a result. Everything you think, say, and do will have an effect. Every action generates a force of energy that returns to it in kind and that energy continues to flow back and forth.This is a great opportunity to both motivate others and get motivated by the others’ story and end this intensive workshop with an energy boost! We will finish this session with a mediation for success attraction. If you find something you need to let go of, release the limiting belief or negative thoughts or emotions that are attracting this person, situation, or scenario. Through the Law of Attraction, you can resolve the issue in whatever way is best for you and then move into this guided visualization If manifesting your dream life only required having positive thoughts, then this conversation would be irrelevant. Then you will be ready to have your 4 hours workshop with Peggy.

Christine, however, will gently tease your “essence” into the shot the way only a professional like her can. It’s a subtle difference that carries substantial weight." — Salla Lintonen, Actress
