The Prosody Intensive is an exploration of the descriptive and experiential skills of prosodic awareness and embodiment, within the context of Knight-Thompson Speechwork. Open to anyone who has taken Experiencing Accents, this workshop is designed to increase possibilities for perceiving, describing, and performing the various components of speech prosody, including stress, syllabification, pitch, duration, and connectivity. We’ll explore the potential applications of these skills to English in an introductory way, while leaving plenty of room for integration into inhabiting any variety of human communication. Participants of all experience levels are welcome, as we’ll be focusing our work on the basics of prosody through play, curiosity, and experimentation.
This course will be online only. All documents and audio materials will be shared through an online platform. All sessions will be recorded and shared with participants.
Early Bird Registration at $250 USD is available through August 24, 2021. The full registration fee is $275 USD.
Please note that Experiencing Accents is a prerequisite for this workshop.
