Projection & Dynamics make your voice and story more dynamic and convincing

Technique is the building block for projection and dynamics. Good voice projection, in other words, being heard in every situation, is essential. Projection is about more than just volume. Therefore, we often address projection and dynamics together.

When working on dynamic voice usage, we aim to prevent your voice from sounding monotonous. Do you always speak at the same volume, pitch, and speed? Then there's a good chance people will describe your voice usage as monotonous or even boring. Fortunately, this can be corrected by using your voice technique. In the section on projection and dynamics, we'll teach you how to use this technique to adapt your voice to any situation.

Improving diction is often overlooked, yet it is crucial. Many people believe that clear speech requires large movements of the lips, jaw, and tongue. The opposite is true: Good diction requires small movements and minimal adjustments of lip, jaw, and tongue position.

Good diction enhances your projection, dynamics & endurance.

Presentation - using your voice to convey your message

When using your voice for presentations, voice training can help you bring more dynamism and projection to your voice usage. But it doesn't end there.

It's important to know how to use the acquired dynamics and projection. When do you speak louder, faster, softer, higher, lower? It depends on your story: What is the storyline of your presentation? What is the dynamics within that storyline? How will your story convince your audience? Based on these questions, you can start matching your voice to your story.

In addition, when it comes to performance, you always consider interpretation: What is the song about, what do you want to convey to the audience, and what kind of feeling does it give you as a singer.

Fortunately, you don't have to imitate anyone, and you can use all this information to give a performance that suits you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time do you need to invest for improvement?

That strongly depends on what you want to work on.

Generally, we see that someone can make noticeable progress in both awareness and sound within 2 to 3 months, assuming they do their exercises daily.

My voice is often hoarse, how can I get rid of it?

Hoarseness can often be improved, provided there are no nodules or polyps. By improving vocal fold closure, working on your breath management, and adjusting your voice behavior, you can often resolve hoarseness.

If you do have nodules on the vocal folds and this has been confirmed by an ENT specialist, we can potentially help you under certain circumstances. Please contact us to see how we can assist you.

Why do I experience fatigue while speaking!

After a day of presenting, meeting, teaching, your voice often feels strained. After a full day of speaking, many people often feel that their voice isn't performing as well. Although voice production is often seen as something you can do effortlessly, your voice is created by a complex system.

If you strain a component in this system, it often shows in your voice. You experience a hoarse voice, excessive mucus production, or muscle pain. Fortunately, you can improve this with voice training.
