CHENNAI: A day-long workshop on the care of voice for teachers was
conducted here on Saturday.
Inaugurating the workshop, T.M.Anbarasan, Labour and Employment
Minister said that for both teachers and politicians their voice was their
asset. Some of the political stalwarts attained greater heights with their
oratorical skills coupled with a captivating voice, he said.
Similar workshops should be conducted in various parts of the State
mainly to help the teachers, Mr Anbarasan appealed to the organisers.
He requested them to organise a similar programme in Kancheepuram
district which has more than 20,000 teachers.
M. Kumaresan, Managing Director, Siva ENT Hospital, said teachers,
politicians, playback singers and dubbing artists had to do some exercise
for about half-an-hour everyday to maintain good voice for a longer
period of time. Nearly 50 per cent of the teachers in the country were
having problems with their voice.
In the workshop the participants were taught on doing two basic
therapies � confidential voice therapy and resonant voice therapy. This was a
warm up exercise for the participants. They were advised to visit the
clinics for evaluation of their voices, he said.
Kamali Sripaul, president, Maruthuva Ariviyal Kazhagam and
P.Iyamperumal, Executive Director, Tamil Nadu Science and Technology Centre, were
among those who participated.
The workshop was jointly organised by Maruthuva Ariviyal Kazhagam and
Tamil nadu Science and Technology Centre.
