How to Increase Confidence Using your Voice Power and liberate the great communicator in you.

One of the most revealing and growth producing areas in training business people, public speakers, performers and actors is the way they use their voice. Knowing how to use your voice can literally transform your world. It can be a very rewarding journey.

Listen to a Sample Session on voice.

“Through the act and willingness to stay physically anchored in the downward and constant pull of our body’s weight, a new breathing capacity emerges; it naturally leads to a transformed way of feeling and seeing. This correct hierarchy acts as a formidable platform to enhanced cognition. From there, our postures, gestures and facial expressions are genuinely engaged in fueling the power of our words and express our unique voice.” Eric Stone

Background and Methodology:

There are many hidden secrets behind our ability to use language to express ourselves and many more behind the voice tone that carries the words we speak. For instance, we need to be learn how to speak. We are so focused on the visual aspects of our lives that we forget the acoustic part, which plays an enormous role in our success and personal well being.

In our experience, no less than 40% of our impact in the world is lodged in our voice tone and placement. It can easily go up to 80% in public speaking, business communication, on stage, in front of a camera or on radio.

As far as communication is concerned, there exists a tendency to either reveal or hide ourselves when meeting others. It may be unconscious and innocent but nonetheless speaks volumes and plays a big part in our ability to demonstrate confidence and polish. Our “appetite” to be heard and/or seen is expressed as follows:

(1) Through body language: our connection to gravity, planting firmly, relaxing, breathing, postures, gestures, facial expressions, movement, staging and use of space, eye contact, physical and emotional actions, intentions, etc.

(2) Through our voice: energy, tone, rhythm, direction, projection, tempo, inflection, timbre, pitch, intonation, articulation, diction, air flow, etc.

Articulate your personal power by using your voice correctly

On the mechanical and instrumental side and in order to communicate powerfully, our voice needs four fundamental activated elements: air, direction, space and distance.

AIR: Without air the voice cannot function and carry our words and ideas through tone; our vocal cords are vibrating because of the amount of air that is available and passing through.

DIRECTION AND DISTANCE: our words and tone need to travel the physical distance in the direction of whom we are speaking to and addressing.

SPACE: needs to be filled with sound in order to be heard easily and appreciated for what it is intending to communicate.

Through this series, having a renewed and conquered experience of your speaking voice will place you at a brand new level of confidence and effectiveness.

How we work: We use a very specific learning method based on several marvelous and most prominent speech techniques and long-time experience as a voice artist, narrator, director and coach. Eric Stone has had the immense privilege to train under Alice Hermes, Edith Skinner and Robert Easton in New York and Los Angeles.

Written language is organized by punctuation and visual arrangements of words as abstract notions. Spoken language is organized and governed by time (rhythm, phrasing, pauses) and by melody (pitch, intonation and inflection.) Having a renewed and often never originally conquered “experience” of sound places the speaker at a new level of confidence and control.
