Feedback from Bill Pepper's March-April Visit to Singapore 2010

Here is some of the feedback received from participants from the workshops:

"His experience and expertise is undeniable. He is patient and looks at each individual's progress. His exercises are practical too. (The most value I got) How to use your diaphrgam was one which i finally got the hang of, the next was the use of pitch in speaking. That was a breakthrough for me as well. I joined this workshop, hoping to be able to connect my voice with my emotions and this workshop has certalnly done that for me. In addition, as with all good workshops, you get more than you expected, and in Bill's case, it was a matter of appreciating the text instead of being overwhelmed by it." Amy Cheng - Actor

"(I liked) Bill's experience and expertise in voice production, exercises to open up and access different aspects of voice production" Timothy Nga - actor

"I like how Bill takes something very abstract and gives us images to focus on so as to internalise the desired outcomes for the exercises. I like how Bill is getting me to look at pitch in a different way by trying to source where the pitch comes from. I am fascinated with the training and can see how it takes time to really perfect the exercises. I would be interested to do more training with Bill. Overall, I am very impressed and am glad I signed up!" Lavinia Tan - Lush FM Radio Host.

"Its (was) great!, its (was) very focused, freeing our bodies to achieve optimum voice control"

Shannon Su - Actor

"Fun, Interactive and practical. Bill is very helpful and is a great coach. Great introduction for newbies, like me, who have never had any vocal training before. The practise that I got and the small group size was great as it enabled more personal attention. The technique and exercises taught also helped improve my voice especially with regards to breathing" Cale Chew - Trainer. Teacher

"It was very interesting. Great insight was given on how the voice relates to the body. I liked the exercises and exploration of the voice within the body. I expected to open my voice up and that expectation was met! Great venue too!" Ian Ketsu - Actor, Host

"Thanks Bill, Great Passion you gave!" Ricky Lien - Producer, Mindset Media

"(The best part for me was) Learning how to use my body to produce a natural voice through the vocal exercises" Esther Tan

"(I liked) The chance to experience the vocal exercises personally with a trainer rather than from books or videos" Sonny Lim, Manager

"I found the entire day very informative and an enjoyable experience. Bill has done a good job of merging the technical with the practical - making the goal of enriching one’s voice a very realistic one."

Anthony Morse - Host History Channel

"Very Insightful and illuminating. I was blown away by Bill's ability in supercharging our breath capacity right down to our spines. It goes beyond whatever I had experienced before and he didn't wrap it up in mystical mumbo-jumbo, but explained it in clear concise terms i could understand. The tonal range and strength of my voice was dramatically improved within an hour of Bill's coaching." - -Edvarcl Heng
