This video provides my top 3 tips for speaking healthily!
Unhealthy talking that strains your throat and deflates your breath is sort of the "silent killer" for singers. A lot of the time, unhealthy speaking habits can contribute to fatigued vocal cords and unhealthy singing technique in the long run.
Luckily, if you've been keeping up with my blog and videos and know how I roll as a teacher; many of the core principles of singing also apply to speaking!
In this video, learn how to talk with confidence -- producing volume that lets you talk louder without the strain. You'll learn:
(1) Where to "aim" the sound for maximum volume (hint: it's not on your throat!)
(2) A simple and crazy effective exercise to help you activate your breath (to make sure you're not holding your breath while you talk)
(3) Why posture can make or break your speaking voice - and how to fix it.
Tips to improve speech for singers apply to non-singers, as well; so if you're a public speaker, or have a job where you have to talk a lot, this video is for you, too.
Check it out, try out the tips, and leave me a comment to let me know which parts of the video you found useful. Also, if you have a friend who has to speak or present a lot for their job, help a buddy out and send them a link to this post!
