When do we use our voice and when don’t we?
We work with it all day and we need it for all sorts of things.
All emotions are encapsulated in our voice, you can easily remark
that when you know somebody, you can hear sadness or joy or
any other emotion or just agitation in that person’s voice.
Only very well-trained voices can switch off those emotions in the voice,
because they have learned to play a role. It involves a lot of practice
in breathing techniques and vocalizations.
And it demands coaching.
Listen to top singers, who, to our ears, can sing so incredibly beautifully.
These singers too, in most cases, need a vocal coach who’s brought them
to this level and who takes care of the maintenance of the vocal instrument
or who is involved in the building-up phase of a trained voice in the making.
And all practice makes perfect, for you won’t achieve anything if you do
nothing. Something you give care to will grow,
so give it special care if you want to get better at something.
The sound we emit is important for the message we want to get across.
So if your message is clear, it then takes work on vocalizations,
adapted to what you want to say.
Listen critically to yourself. It may be a shock the first time around,
because you don’t know your own sound yet…but keep listening…
do you want to get your message across like this, do you think it will be received?
We can also listen together and, who knows, I might help you
make some progress in getting your message across.
