Our Digital Clinics are designed to help fine tune performance & self direction when recording from home! Participants will be emailed game copy, record their reads from home, and upload their MP3 to a password protected site where our guest instructor will listen and provide audio feedback on their read! Participants will then upload a 2nd read with the notes in mind, and will receive written feedback about the adjustments. Reads will be due on Friday, April 24th at 1pm.
