ADVICE AND CARE FOR THE SPOKEN VOICE
TALKS AND SEMINARS
Across a lifespan, the human voice is subject to environmental threats such as chemical pollution, smoke and any air-born irritants. It is also subject to emotional stress as the target organ for the experience and communication of emotion at a primal level.
For many, the voice is a vital tool that enables us to do our work. Teachers, business men, lawyers and clerics (amongst many others) all rely on their voices for their work. Yet few have any idea how it works, how to protect it or what to do when it goes wrong.
These courses will teach simple but effective strategies such as warming up your voice, stretching vocal muscles, basic voice care and what to do to avoid vocal fatigue and injury.
HOW TO AVOID POST ZOOM CROAK
Avoiding voice fatigue in online meetings
Zoom is an integral part of our work, play and family life. 2 trillion minutes were spent on Zoom in April 2020 alone. But why is it so much more tiring than in person encounters? Does your voice get croaky after a zoom meeting, do you get hoarse? Speaking online is much more tiring than a normal in person meetings. Normal visual cues and non-verbal communication are largely missing. Latency issues cause us to speak over each other and to speak too loudly which can be very tiring for the voice.
This session will include tips on vocal hygiene, warming-up the voice, body positioning, pacing, developing non-verbal communication skills and some psychological tips to help avoid the pitfalls of vocal fatigue.
