In this course you'll learn that you CAN change the sound of your voice, giving it a rich, resonant quality, by using 'Voice Placement'. Once you discover Body Placement, you will have a beautiful, commanding, and healthy speaking voice for life.

If you want a beautiful, resonant, healthy voice, you've got to learn the basics of Vocal Placement. In this lecture you'll learn the many benefits of the Vocal Placement Exercise and how it will change the way you speak.
Why using Head placement can lead to an annoying speaking voice, and how to be aware that you are using Head placement.
This is the first step in the Voice Placement Exercise - Head Voice. We'll be doing this exercise on an Ahhh vowel. You'll be able to feel and hear the sound of the Head Voice is in this exercise.
Now we'll do the same placement exercise, but while talking, so that you can experience what that feels and sounds like.
We'll continue with the Head Placement Speaking Exercise and recap what we've learned about Head Placement.
Get a good understanding of what is happening physically when you are using Head Placement, and how those mechanics affect your vocal sound.
Before we move on to Chest Placement, let's see why knowing about Head Placement is important!
In this lecture we'll explore what Chest Placement is and how it affects the sound of your voice by bringing more rich resonance to the tone for a more pleasing and powerful voice.
Let's continue on with our Vocal Placement Exercise. You'll learn how to place the voice in the Chest, which will have you speaking with a richer, more pleasing voice. We'll do this exercise on an 'ahhh'.
Let's move on to using our speaking voice with Chest Placement.
Build awareness about what's really happening in your body when you place the voice in the Chest. What is your larynx doing? How is your breathing supporting the tone? When you're aware of what you're doing physically, you can duplicate the Chest Voice Placement until it becomes natural.
Test your knowledge of Chest Placement and its benefits.
Now you'll learn wh Body Placement is the Speaker's 'Secret Weapon'! If you want a commanding, rich, healthy voice, you'll want to learn how to speak with the Body Voice.
This Exercise will help you drop the voice into the body so that you can take full advantage of body resonance. We'll go from Head, to Chest, to Body placement so that you can feel and hear the difference between those three placements.
Speaking with the Body Voice will give you confidence; vocal power, and a healthy voice that will never get tired or damaged. Here's how to do it.
Become aware of what your body is doing mechanically to produce the Body Voice so that you can make this your natural voice placement.
You'll also go through all the Voice Placements in this Lecture as well as find your perfect speaking range with the 'Siren' exercise.
Test your knowledge of Body Placement.
Yay! You now know the power of Speaking with Body Resonance! Let's go through what you've learned by reviewing the material.
