Would you rather jump out of a plane than give a presentation at work or speak in front to the class? Are you told that you aren’t loud enough or that you’re hard to understand? Do others say they can’t understand you because of your accent?
Would you like to reclaim your natural speaking voice and the power and persuasion that it holds?
As a Designated Linklater Voice Teacher and Certified Colaianni Voice Instructor, I will help you address the mental and physical blocks that hold back your voice. I employ several exercises that pinpoint and relax tension areas that impede your voice’s clarity and power. Lesson topics include articulation, volume, accessing and using pitch, finding and using operative words, reducing vocal habits and tics, accent modification, and learning new accents.
With over 20 years of teaching experience, I’ve taught all ages of students. I enjoy helping others find and use the potential of their voices to inform, persuade, and emotional move the listener.
I look forward to working with you!
