Our Online Seminars

Newly designed, our online seminars offer a shorter, more affordable online introduction to The McClosky Technique.  

Planned with online learning in mind, these classes include

- Lectures (Technique; Anatomy; Speaking Voice)

- Breakout sessions focusing on personal technique

- Group Q&A sessions. 

The schedule: two consecutive days, 1:00pm-5:00pm EDT, which will allow for participation from many time zones. 

Tuition is only $185 (as compared to $535 for our traditional in-person Summer Seminars), and there is a reduced price of $150 for past seminar participants.

The next sessions in 2021:

  • Friday-Saturday July 16-17

  • Saturday-Sunday July 24-25
