VOICE TRAINING

Voice training helps you getting a better understanding of how the voice works, and enables you to gain control over it. Wether that is to help you prevent vocal fatigue, to make your voice more dynamic or train your diction.

TRAIN YOUR VOICE

The first step in our voice training is a short analysis of your voice use. We will listen to your voice and ask you a few questions about your daily life and the voice problems you encouter.

After that we'll tell you how we can help you. We start with a short explanation of the Estill Model and give you a few exercises to get you started. This way you'll get a good idea of what voice training is and how it can benefit you.

ESTILL VOICE TRAINING

Estill Voice Trainig is a popular method that is used worldwide by many Speech Language Therapists and vocal coaches.

Voice is mascular, Estill identifies those muscles. Working with the Estill method will give you very precise and targeted practise. By combining that practise with a basic understanding of how the voice works, it will give you the power to take control over your voice.

PRESENTING

If you use your voice to give presentations, voice training can help you getting more dynamic voice use and better projection of your voice.

After getting a basic training and improving your dynamics and projection it's time to start using those new skills to perfect your presentations. How do you choose when to speak loud, quiet, fast, slow, high or low? Your story will tell you. By understanding how your presentation is build up you can choose how to use your voice use.

SPEAKING

There is more to efficient and good voice use than technique. It is the basis you can use in diction, projection and dynamics.

PROJECTION & DYNAMICS

Speaking with clarity and getting your story across compellingly is what most speakers are after. Projection and voice dynamics are indispensable to reach that goal.

Projection is influenced by things like tongue position, larynx position but also effective closure of your vocal folds. We will learn you how to improve your projection by training more awareness and skill. This will enable you to be audible in any situation from boardrooms to busy pubs and restaurants.

Next to projection you have to work on dynamic voice use. Having an understanding how dynamic voice use can get your story across better is key to being a compelling speaker. When training dynamic voice use we look at subjects like volume, rhythm and pitch.

DICTION

Diction is most often ignored. A shame as this can be so benifitial to your clarity. That's why we always put some serious effort into getting your diction right!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Yes! Voice is muscular meaning that it's made through muscle control. Not so different from writing, walking or any other thing that requires motor skill. Everyone can learn how to control their muscles therefore everyone can learn how to control their voice!

A true frequently asked question, but always difficult to answer. We can't tell you how long it will take you specifically. It's depended on things like the complexity of your wishes, your ability to pick up the material etc.

Generally speaking, we see real improvement in about 3 months after someone started training and is doing their exercises on a daily basis.

After a long day of meetings, teaching or presentations your voice can feel sore or might be completely lost. This happens to many people every day. The system that we make voice with is rather complex even though we often feel that being able to speak is a given. But the system can get overloaded quickly.

To prevent fatigue we can train our voices to become more efficient. With a better understanding of how the voice works, and in particular what is causing your problem will help you to train your voice with precision. We train both function and stamina. This way we prevent your problems from coming back and give you a whole new range of dynamics to use whilst speaking.
