Voice coaching refers to getting your speech and voice coached by a qualified voice coach or Speech Therapist.
Some people look for voice coaching because they have a history of voice problems or hoarseness. Some people seek for voice coaching to develop their authentic voice, by speaking as openly as possible. Whichever category you fall into, read on and go through this checklist mentally.
- You have wanted to change something about your voice.
- Your voice gets tired or hoarse after talking.
- You give presentations for a living.
- Your work relies on verbal communication (meetings, teleconferences, speeches etc)
- You feel there is a disconcert between your physical image, and what your voice portrays.
- You talk a lot for your work and want to make sure you are able to continue this.
- You use your voice intensely in some way, other than speaking ( singing, voice overs, teaching)
- You want a stronger, fuller voice which represents the real you.
- You want to make sure you are speaking as well as you possibly can.
If you have ticked at least three of those boxes, then you would definitely benefit from voice coaching.
Most people think that their voice is an unchangeable feature of their body and personality. That is far from the truth. The voice is a dynamic instrument and it is capable of much more than you think.
If you have had vocal injuries in the past, or suffer from vocal fatigue, chances are, you might not be speaking the most efficient way. There is a stark difference between natural and habits.
A number of factors influence the way we speak, and the way we sound.
- Role models
- Friends and social circle
- Degree of vocal awareness and training
