I give voice and speech workshops for teachers and other professional speakers. Optimal voice use and clear articulation is an essential part of being an effective communicator. The intense daily use of the voice requires the application of healthy speaking habits and techniques to prevent hoarseness, sore throat and voice problems. A well-functioning voice is crucial for successful communication.
Your Voice Should Be Heard Not Hurt
I teach professional speakers basic voice techniques to prevent and treat voice problems.
Teachers, sports coaches, receptionists, actors, camp counselors, lawyers, and pastors are a few examples of people who use their voice intensely and depend on it for doing their work well.
Taking care of your voice and learning proper voice techniques can reduce vocal stress and increase good communication.
I can provide workshops for groups as well as individual coaching and voice therapy.
The focus is on learning to use your voice optimally by knowing how to:
- sustain good posture
- relax the muscles involved in voice performance
- support your voice with proper breathing
- increase resonance in order to have your voice heard –and not hurt- in noisy environments
- reduce vocal stress by proper articulation and crisp diction
The use of proper vocal techniques will make sure you are heard without hurting your voice.
Location: Can be arranged at your workplace or at your home.
