If you are preparing for an upcoming meeting but feel nervous when you get up to speak, or want to improve your speaking skills in business meetings and other public forums, a few sessions with a vocal coach can help you build a stronger speaking voice and speaking presence.
You learn how to take deep natural breaths to support your voice, overcome nervousness, feel natural and at ease, and practice pacing a speech or presentation to capture and maintain interest.
If you are a speaker, or an actor or a drama student preparing for an audition a few sessions with a vocal coach can help you learn how to be more natural, authentic and believable on stage so you can connect with the audience.
Training for the Speaking Voice benefits:
The training focuses on developing a stronger voice, a confident speaking presence and the ability to feel more at ease when speaking in public forums and in one-on-one situations.
Apointments are scheduled for 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions - generally once a week. Sessions are a combination of exercises to strengthen your voice, and performance training to build your speaking presence so you will feel self-confident and more at ease when you stand to speak.
The time spent on each part of the session varies from student to student to address the specific strengths and weaknesses of your voice. The exercises are fun to do and the training is very effective. You will begin to make measurable progress during the first session.
Reduced Rates are offered to students that pay in advance for four lessons.
There is no charge for the initial half-hour appointment that offers us an opportunity to get to know each other as I evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your voice. If you want to continue you can can set up a series of appointments for lessons at that time. You can book one or more sessions to help you prepare for an upcoming audition or speech, or a period of recurring sessions that will help you build a stronger voice and a more dynamic speaking voice. Most students make measurable progress in four to five sessions.
We accept payments in cash, by check or with a credit card. Monthly invoicing for tuition for recurring lessons is also available.
