For the past few years, I’ve been learning about voice from Leigh Wilson Smiley, Director of the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, at the University of Maryland. I thought if I was going to get into podcasting, I ought to know something about the craft of “voice.”
What’s happened since then is that, working with Leigh, I’ve developed a passion for reciting Shakespeare and poetry. It’s now become a fun hobby of mine. The Readings on this page are the current results of some of those efforts. I have learned that you can never get these exactly “right”, just how you’re feeling and interpreting the words at the time. I highly recommend that you give it a try.
You learn a lot from the process, and from the words of the great artists. Hope you enjoy them.
