Webinar 1 led by KTS Master Teacher Erik Singer

March 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

  • Are you feeling isolated in your KTS reverie?

  • Need a fellow phoneme geek to set you straight?

  • Falling out of practice with your mouth yoga practice?

If you’ve answered ‘Yes’ to any of the above questions then….

You’re Invited To Join Our KTS Webinar Series led by Master Teacher Erik Singer: Coaching Accent through Oral Posture: achieving detail through adjustments of position.

Our first webinar is on Friday March 3rd 11am – Pacific Standard Time.

(11 AM Pacific/1PM Central/ 2PM Eastern/ 7PMLondon/ 6AM Saturday Sydney Australia)


Once a month, every member of the KTS community is invited to connect, collaborate, and share all things KTS related. If you have taken the Experiencing Speech Intensive or have been introduced to fundamental Experiencing Speechwork practices, or are interested in this aspect of the work, this webinar is for you! Your KTS questions, solutions, phobias, phenomenon’s, doohickey’s, details, observations, obsessions, and fancies are all invited to the conversation.

Our aim for the Webinar Series is to keep us connected on regular basis, sustain our KTS conversations, and strengthen our growing KTS community.

Inspired from VASTA’s forum of “Things that Work”, the format of our Webinar’s might be for the facilitator to offer up a question, and the participants can chime in with their solutions.

Our conversations will be approximately 1 hour and take place on the first Friday of every month at 11 AM Pacific/1PM Central/ 2PM Eastern/ 7PM London/ 6AM Saturday Sydney Australia
