1. You Have a Better Voice Inside of You - Really!
December 01, 2014

It may seem hard to believe, but you are not stuck with what you hear on recording equipment. You have a richer, warmer, more mature-sounding voice inside of you. Most people rely on their throat and vocal cords to do the majority of the work when speaking. However, when you change your voice placement, you will immediately notice a difference in the quality of your sound because your voice will be vibrating in your mid-torso region. Those who possess great voices are vibrating in that area because they are using their chest cavity as their primary sounding board and amplifier. In ... (read more)

2. How to Increase Your Volume Without Yelling
October 14, 2014

When you increase your volume, does your throat hurt? If you root for your favorite sports team, is your voice hoarse the next day? Perhaps you have no voice by the next day. All three of these situations are known as vocal abuse. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, then you are not increasing your volume correctly. Yelling or shouting to be heard means that you are pushing your voice from your throat. It also means that you are raising your pitch which results in a harsh quality. When you push your voice over an extended period of time in this manner, you can do serious ... (read more)

3. Losing Your Voice in the Club Scene?
August 05, 2014

Does this sound familiar? You go to a loud club and your friends tell you that they can’t hear you even though you’ve been talking in a louder voice. Your throat feels raw and sore or perhaps you have lost your voice after an hour or two of straining to be heard. What you are experiencing is vocal abuse. You’ve been pushing your voice, which is not only straining your vocal cords and throat, but is not being heard in the process. This is tiring, frustrating and can lead to permanent damage. Your friends don’t have this problem so why do you? Your vocal cords are as individual to... (read more)

4. Do You Know the Difference Between Projecting Your Voice and Yelling?
May 06, 2014

When you need to speak with more volume, do you know if you are yelling or are you projecting your voice? If you are like most people, you probably yell or shout to be heard. The problem with increasing your volume in this manner is that it is hard on your throat and vocal cords. And, it can also be hard on your listeners' ears. The tremendous strain placed on your throat and vocal cords by shouting or yelling hurts your voice. This is why you may notice that your throat gets sore, your voice may become raspy or hoarse, and you may even experience voice loss. All 3 symptoms are called voc... (read more)

5. The Best Way to Care for Your Voice
April 14, 2014

Did you know that your vocal cords are an organ? And, just as the other organs in your body need good nutrition, plenty of sleep, and the avoidance of smoking and drugs, your vocal cords do as well. Consisting of two small bands of muscle, the cords were previously thought to act like the strings of a guitar or piano – hence their name. With the advent of a video camera which could fit down the throat, however, it was discovered that the cords functioned more like puffs of tissue, rapidly opening and closing. This is why many refer to them as vocal folds. Whatever you want to ca... (read more)

6. Your Voice Is Your Calling Card - Is That Good Or Not So Good?
April 09, 2014

One of the 1st things you do when you start a new business is to create a business card. While the purpose of the card is to identify you and your business, your goal with that card is to project a positive image of that business. In fact, you should probably hire a creative talent to design your card because you want an image that looks professional and successful. Your voice is a form of calling card as well. When you consider that the sound of your voice accounts for a good 37% of the image you project, what does yours say about you? Does it sound professional? What about over the... (read more)

7. If You're Constantly Asked to Repeat Yourself, Is It Because Your Diction Is Not Clear?
March 18, 2014

If others ask you to repeat yourself – a lot – is it because your diction is not clear? Too often, those who are asked to repeat themselves are not being understood because of unclear or indistinct articulation or diction. There are certainly several other reasons we are asked that timeless question, “What did you say?” It could be that you are soft-spoken or perhaps you mumble or it could even be that you talk too fast. My focus here, however, is to discuss the lack of good diction. And, I am not just referring to those in which English is not their 1st language. There are many... (read more)

8. Pushing Your Voice Can Lead to Permanent Damage - Especially Super Bowl Sunday!
January 28, 2014

In less than a week, millions of Americans and Canadians will get together with friends and family to watch the largest sporting event in our country. And, during those 4 hours of play, a lot of fans will experience sore throats, hoarseness, and possibly even loss of voice. Many people will find their voice much improved in the next day or two; however, there are some who will begin to notice that their voices are not returning to their ‘normal’ sound or strength. This is called vocal abuse and the problem with vocal abuse is that it can lead to permanent damage of the vocal cords. U... (read more)

9. What Is Causing Your Chronic Hoarseness or Persistent Sore Throat?
November 12, 2013

If you are experiencing hoarseness or a sore throat which will not go away, it could be vocal abuse. For many of my clients who complain of one or both of these problems, after a visit to an Ear, Nose, & Throat Specialist, they are told that there is no physical problem. Often the vocal cords and/or throat may have some redness; but, other than that, they are told that they are not sick and given a clean bill of health. That is the problem. And that is vocal abuse. Because the majority of people power their voice primarily by means of their throat and vocal cords (as well as the mouth... (read more)

10. Public Speaking Tips - Making Your Voice Sound Lower
October 07, 2013

Would you like a deeper speaking voice? Perhaps you are over 21 and think your voice sounds too young. Maybe you feel that your voice is wimpy, strident, harsh, whispery, or nasal. The good news is that you actually have a deeper or lower voice inside of you. It is there just waiting to be discovered. Remember the Ted Knight character on the Mary Tyler Moore Show? As a news anchor, he would drop his chin to his neck in order to speak in a lower or deeper voice whenever it was time for him to go on the air. What he was trying to do was speak at the very bottom of his range. And that... (read more)

11. Vocal Abuse: Unless You Change Your Voice Placement, It Will Not Go Away on Its Own
September 10, 2013

I recently received an email from a man who runs a museum in Australia inquiring whether he could include my blog posts in his newsletters for his museum guides. Why would a museum guide need information on the voice? Because his employees often speak non-stop throughout their day. Anyone who talks for great lengths of time, be it politicians, ministers, public speakers, trainers, coaches, teachers, professors, and the like, rely on their voice for their living. But vocal abuse does not just affect people in these professions. It can happen to those who root for their favorite sports ... (read more)

12. Calling All Teachers - Will You Experience Vocal Abuse When You Return to School in September?
August 06, 2013

One of the most difficult problems for the middle-aged teacher is having enough voice to get through the day. While it most often effects those in their 40’s and 50’s, I am seeing it in younger teachers as well. Described as chronic hoarseness, a persistent sore throat, or even loss of voice, vocal abuse will not go away on its own until you stop what is causing it. Often the teacher will see an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist who may discover polyps or nodes on the vocal cords. What is more common, however, is that the doctor finds nothings physically wrong with the cords aside from s... (read more)

13. How Vocal Abuse and Public Speaking Go Hand-in-Hand
July 16, 2013

One of the greatest challenges for those whose careers involve public speaking is vocal abuse. We see it with many who make a living by addressing an audience – from political candidates like Hillary Clinton to world-renowned motivational speakers like Anthony Robbins. Other career choices that involve heavy use of the voice include aerobics instructors, coaches, teachers, ministers, business trainers, and even stay-at-home moms who may be inclined to yell a lot throughout their day. The problem with vocal abuse is that unless you change the placement of your voice, it will continue... (read more)

14. Public Speaking: What Is the Bottom Line?
July 09, 2013

If you desire to be a public speaker, then you have a goal that needs to be met if you are going to be successful in your career. I am not talking about the wedding toasting, the valedictorian speech, or a travel presentation to a senior citizens group. I am talking specifically about the persuasive presentation. Your goal with this type of presentation is to satisfy the needs of your audience. They came to hear you speak for a reason. Whatever their issue, their problem, or their pain, your job is to ‘ease their pain.’ That is the bottom line. Yes, you want to give a dynam... (read more)

15. When You Stop Pushing Your Voice, You Will Stop the Vocal Abuse
July 02, 2013

I hear from many people about their chronic hoarseness, a persistent sore throat, or even loss of voice by the end of the day. This is called vocal abuse and until you change how you produce voiced sound, you will not stop this abuse. Most people are using only 4 of their 5 resonators to speak: the voice box, throat, mouth and nasal cavities with most of the work being accomplished by the throat and vocal cords. The 5th resonator is your chest cavity and is responsible for a deeper, richer, warmer sound. It is also the only means of increasing your volume without shouting. If your ch... (read more)

16. If you are Suffering from Vocal Abuse
June 26, 2013

I hear it every day. Individuals complaining to me that they're frequently hoarse, possess a persistent sore throat, or shed their voice by the finish of your day. The a single I just study about is a young man who wants to speak louder in the clubs without having hurting his throat. Regrettably, vocal abuse is really a actual and increasing challenge for individuals who use their voice heavily all through the day or who are in loud environments and resort to shouting to become heard. The result is frequently harm for the vocal folds (cords) which may possibly be permanent if it occurs freq... (read more)

17. Your Goal May Be Public Speaking But Your Voice Is Your Calling Card
June 04, 2013

In order to improve your presentation skills, you research, you read, you listen, you watch speakers, you may even take a course in public speaking. Be it on the internet, in the boardroom, at a 1-day conference or your local community college, your goal is to learn as much as possible about honing your presentation skills. But what about your speaking voice? When you consider that your voice is the vehicle or the means by which you transport your message, how does your voice measure up to the rest of your delivery? And by that I mean the voice you hear on recording equipment – not the... (read more)

18. A Voice Like That of George Clooney or Julia Ormond Is Within Your Reach
May 15, 2013

Imagine standing out from the crowd when you speak. Is it possible? Everyone has a better voice inside of them; unfortunately, most people are unaware of it. What is a better voice? One that vibrates in your chest when you speak and grabs your listeners’ attention with its warmth and resonance. Unfortunately, the only resonance most people hear when they speak is that which is coming through their nose. That is not the resonance I am talking about. Voices like that of Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman, George Clooney, Kate Beckinsale, Diane Sawyer, Peter Coyote, Cher, Sean Connery, ... (read more)

19. Is Training for Your Speaking Voice Something You Should Consider?
March 13, 2013

Many people want to improve themselves. They get an education to learn more; they take courses to improve themselves. What most people do not realize is that they have a better voice inside of them. I call it your real or true voice. Unfortunately, we, as a people, are lazy breathers. All mammals breathe with the support of the diaphragm. You and I were born breathing with the support of that muscle. As we develop, however, we resort to shallow or lazy breathing which has an effect on the production and sound of the speaking voice. It means that instead of powering the voice with a... (read more)

20. The Similarities Between Yoga and Voice Training
March 05, 2013

I am sure you are questioning how these two disciplines are similar. Actually 3 of the 5 principles of yoga are the same principles of voice training. And, because I personally live my life 24/7 making use of these 3 principles, I am able to handle stress and minor pain quite effectively. The 1st principle is relaxation which is something I suggest before training for the speaking (or singing) voice even begins. Any tension in the shoulder, neck, throat, mouth and/or jaw regions will negatively affect the outcome of discovering your ‘real’ or ‘true’ voice. When you can release the t... (read more)

21. You Don't Smoke - You're Not Sick - But Your Throat Hurts
February 19, 2013

Those who smoke, who are sick or who take prescriptive medications can often experience a sore or raw throat. What about the individual who does not fall into any of those 3 categories but experiences a persistent sore throat or chronic hoarseness? The only real cause for an irritated throat is misplacement of the voice. That sounds strange, doesn’t it? You ask, how is it possible to misplace your voice? The answer is simple. When you consider that you have 5 cavities in the body responsible for the vibration and amplification of voiced sound and that you are probably using only 4 of t... (read more)

22. Sore Throats Will Be the Result of the Super Bowl and It Won't Be Caused by the Flue
January 16, 2013

There is no doubt that there are a lot of sore throats right now caused by the flu which is running rampant in the States; however, come February 3, there will be a lot more sore throats and hoarseness which will have nothing to do with any illness. There may even be some who experience loss of voice. Slated for the 3rd of February, the Super Bowl will draw millions of viewers. Many who watch this particular game will experience something known as vocal abuse. The culprit? Pushing your voice from your throat – also known as yelling, screaming or shouting – for 4 hours or more. For some... (read more)

23. the 2 Best Ways to Control Your Speed When Speaking
December 08, 2012

Often I find that unclear or poor diction is due to talking at 100 mph. It is certainly not uncommon to hear it in people in which English is not their 1st language; however, it can also occur for speakers in any language whether it is their mother tongue or a 2nd language. Bear in mind that those who speak really fast are usually not aware of it. Their inner ear hears it as being clear and precise. Therefore, it is important for these people to listen to themselves on a recording, whether it is their voicemail, a camcorder, or some other form of recording equipment. One woman with whom...

24. If Your Goal Is Public Speaking, You Should Definitely Consider Voice Training
November 28, 2012

Yes, you will have a richer, warmer, more mature sound when you discover your ‘real’ voice. And, yes, you will be able to increase your volume without shouting when you discover your ‘real’ voice. But there is something else you should consider if public speaking is your goal. The likelihood of suffering vocal abuse is much greater if you plan to pursue a career as a professional speaker. One of the best examples of vocal abuse and public speaking is Anthony Robbins. His voice has suffered so much damage that he has botox injections in order to be able to talk. I admire this man’s spea... (read more)

25. I Never Yelled at My Kids - I Projected!
November 20, 2012

Do you know the difference between projecting your voice and yelling? The latter hurts your throat and can be painful to your listeners’ ears. The latter also does not make your children sit up and take notice of what you are saying. Instead, they either cower in fear or stop listening to you. Many years ago, I must confess that I yelled at my husband. His response was that he wished he had a tape recorder so I could hear what I sounded like. Luckily, that only happened one time but it is a memory I will never forget. I decided right then and there that I would never do that again. ... (read more)
