As a world-leading centre for performance teaching and research excellence, we aspire to foster a climate of creativity, artistry and innovation.
Central’s Voice Studies courses are nationally and internationally renowned and the staff teaching on these courses are leaders in their field. The courses have a close relationship with the celebrated International Network for Voice, based at Central; students and alumni benefit from close involvement.
The International Network for Voice is a membership organisation that facilitates continuing professional development for and with voice teachers, practitioners and researchers. The network acts as a hub for information and activities related to voice in the arts, particularly theatre and performance.
The network aims to develop strategic alliances with key national and international partners including the RSC, the Royal National Theatre, the Royal Conservatoire for Scotland, and VASTA in the United States, amongst others.
