Based on recent physiological and psychological research as well as years of experience as a public speaking coach and stage performer, I developed a method to make our immensely complex voice easily accessible.
This way, I can help improve your stage confidence, presentation and communication skills, and show you how to adjust the sound of your voice and the rhythm of your speech to get the most out of every vocal encounter.
A Three Step Method for Clarity and Efficiency
To quickly get a flexible and confident voice that suits every need, we mainly need to keep things simple and train efficiently. That’s why my method consists of three simple steps that will break down even the most complicated vocal issues into workable units.
Step One: Analysis
The goals in vocal training are very different: Some want to improve their presentation skills, others want to get that low and powerful voice right for a sales pitch, others simply want a voice that doesn’t grow tired. In any case, the first step we need to take is analysis. The better you understand what you’re aiming for, the more you can rule out, making your goals clearer and your training more efficient.
Using every day examples as well as cases from your field of work, we quickly identify which vocal sound you need when, why, and how.
Step Two: Technique
After defining the goal, all you need is the proper toolbox to start work. This consists of two technique packages:
Vocal technique: Physiological knowledge to be able to make every vocal sound you can think of. Really. Every single one. We all have the same set of muscles, so you can reproduce anything you hear anywhere.
Performance technique: Presentation skills, communication skills, rhetorics, stage fright management – anything that stands between your and satisfied customers/audience/officials/team members/superiors/externals/etc.
Custom tailored to your personal need, a good mix of these two will equip you with everything you need to know to prepare or quickly fix your voice.
Step three: Feedback Cycle
Now it’s time to go out and do it! The third step is to create your personal feedback cycle by trying out what you learned in step two to constantly refine the goals and wishes posed in step one. Now you know how to analyze both success and failure, using your vocal toolbox to improve your voice whenever you speak!
Through case simulation, we prepare ourselves on site for this sometimes challenging but immensely powerful final stage in vocal improvement.
