There are 4 modules in this course

This first module is focused on awareness and knowledge of the voice. We'll begin by developing awareness - awareness underpins everything when it comes to learning and building new behaviours and skills. We have a discussion on what a ‘professional voice’ is and how we might begin to find it. You'll be introduced to the basic premise of how the voice is made in the body, and what can get in the way of it working at an optimal level. You'll be guided through several exercises designed to improve your self-awareness and will begin to recognise some of your current behaviours around speaking.

One of the key components of speaking with confidence and impact is to understand and utilise the body in relation to voice and presence. Looking at areas such as release of tension, alignment, breath and projection, you'll discover new options that will help you increase your confidence and impact.
