Voice projection

Hi everyone. Long time no see. It's been a difficult time since my husband died but slowly I'm coming out of the fog.

A number of my clients are now needing to improve the quality of their voices. They need to speak with more confidence and strength. One client is a head chef of a top Sydney restaurant and needs to do media work and cooking classes. He spoke too quietly and wouldn't be able to be heard in a large auditorium. Another is a young Columbian man who wants to work in the media. h
He didn't like the sound of his voice and needed to add more 'gravitas' to his voice.
With a combination of yoga breathing exercises and acting voice production exercises both have started to achieve a change in their voices. The chef tells me his confidnece and strentgh came from a hellish Christmas season in the restaurant where he had to be more commanding! What ever it was it worked.
