Speak With Confidence Thanks to Vocal Lessons From Arthur Reel Studio!, Bronx, New York

For over 40 years, Arthur Reel Studio, Communications and Actor Training has provided New York’s rising talents with acting classes and lessons in communication skills. But among the most important of the studio’s services are its vocal lessons. Without a strong voice, how can you expect to communicate a clear and concise message to your audience? While every aspect of your voice is crucial to the success of your speech, if you sound weak or strained, you risk losing your audience and your credibility. How you sound depends not only on your posture, but on your breath and articulation as well.

Here are some quick tips for you to begin training your voice for better public speaking:

  • Posture is key to a stronger voice. When you slouch, your abdomen has less room to move. Air pushes out from your abdomen, not from your throat or mouth. If you stand erect with your head high and your shoulders back, you will open up your entire midsection. Your diaphragm will be able to contract, and your chest will fill with enough air to help you speak without gasping for breath.
  • Breath is the next important component when it comes to a strong voice. When you breathe from your throat, two catastrophic things happen: For one, you dry out your mouth and throat, which makes it hard for you to articulate. You also aren’t able to speak for long periods without asphyxiating. Practice breathing from your diaphragm. This will allow air to enter and exit your body while leaving your throat open and hydrated.
  • Articulation is most important to successful public speaking. If you mumble, will your audience understand you? It’s not likely. Speak loudly and slowly, and take your time when imparting your information unto your listeners. Make sure that your voice articulates the plosive consonants, such as b, d, g, p, and t, among others. Above all, watch the tone of your voice. Monotony will bore your crowd, while too much melody will distract them. Go for a happy medium.

With these starter tips, you can begin to speak in public with confidence. Your next step is to call Arthur Reel Studio and sign up for public speaking classes and vocal lessons. Call (212) 595-1733 today, and watch your communication and presentation skills grow!
