The Voice - The key to personal and professional success

The voice is the centre of our communication, and therefore for all human beings the most important instrument in everyday life, not only for professional and business purposes but also in all areas of private life. The sound of the voice mirrors our personality and our actual mood. But the voice is not only the result of the resonance within the resonant cavities of the vocal tract. Posture and breathing play a significant role when speaking or making any verbal sound. So actually, we start speaking BEFORE we apply our voice: our attitude and charisma are our first messages being communicated to others. As we learn practical techniques for posture, breathing and vocalization, we not only start being able to influence and control our vocal sound, but also our entire charisma. The effect is reciprocal: a self-confident posture and a secure voice nourish positive feelings within ourselves and hence stimulate our self-confidence and self-esteem. As a result our charisma, as well as our success in our professions and in society, is increased. And after all, a happy person is a healthy person: the voice is the key to success, happiness and health.

What can I learn at The Vocal Key?

 

Effective vocal training implies not only vocal exercises to increase resonance, but also healthy breathing and posture. A workshop or an individual session is comprised by the following areas:

 

  • Conscious body posture and movement; for instance posture of the arms, head and back, standing positions, etc.

  • Anatomy of the vocal chords and voice box, the vocal cavities, voice exercises, discovering potential tensions, relaxation exercises, projection of the voice, diction, and dynamics.

  • Anatomy of the lungs and the diaphragm, the respiratory functions, breathing exercises, and the airflow during voice projection.

  • The relationship between the emotion and the voice; vocal techniques for the controlled expression of emotions.

  • Improvisation in groups, reading of a text and/or spontaneous speech in front of the group, applying the newly learnt techniques.
