IN GOOD VOICE!


~THE VOICE COACH IN ACTION~


Being a Voice Coach is not just about teaching singing, it is also about offering specialist tuition to those who seek help with speaking in public. Actors, teachers, business people and politicians all use voice coaches to improve their delivery and keep their voices in good shape, which is essential for their work.


Using your voice in public is a very different matter from casual conversation. Making yourself heard at the back of a hall, theatre, or large room, takes skill and confidence and can place an enormous strain on the voice if you have had no training. Lack of confidence can cause tension and affect the voice. Continuous wear and tear can soon result in hoarseness or even complete voice loss.


A voice coach will teach you how to produce your voice well so that you can be heard without physical effort. You will learn about good breathing to support your voice, about pace and pitch of delivery and how to emphasise important points, keeping the listener interested. All these are essential for becoming a good speaker to public groups or audiences.


If you are a singer, a voice coach will also work with you on other more specific areas. As well as being able to produce a beautiful singing tone, it is just as important that you get the meaning of the song across to the listener. In practice, this means not distorting the words and ensuring there is enough breath to last to the end of each phrase, no matter what the demands of the music.


Whether speaking or singing, your voice is unique to you. If you are to make the best use of it, increase your confidence and prevent strain and hoarseness, coaching can really make a difference.
