Curriculum

Section 1: Welcome Section
03:03

Welcome to the course!  In this lecture you will hear all about what you are going to learn and how the material will be delivered.  In addition, you will learn valuable tools to get the most of this course for your success. 

06:25

In this lecture I'll tell you a little bit about me, your instructor.  I've been in this industry of voice work for over 30 years.  I'm looking forward to sharing a little bit about me and my expertise with you.

03:13

In this lecture I'll talk about why it's so important to sound confident.  The voice leads, it's the first thing we have to start making decisions about you.  If you are leading with a voice that reflects low self esteem then there is a problem from the start.  

Section 2: The Basic Concepts
07:20

In this lecture I give you an explanation on why you don't sound confident.  I'll put this in a perspective that you  might have never thought about.  This is valuable information for us to uncover and will help you progress faster because you'll understand the core of why you are not sounding confident.  Hint, you have a confident voice in you!

03:50

In this lecture I'll introduce you to the idea and concept of technique.  The method I'll be teaching in the course is very specialized and unique to my years of training and education.  You'll get the foundation of the work and the process to your success here.


05:05

In this lecture I'll be talking about muscle memory.  This is probably going to be a new concept for you but this is the core of the work that we will do.  It's essential that you learn and understand the ideology behind muscle memory and laying in a new layer, which is what we will be doing to make you sound more confident.

06:10

In this lecture I talk about practice.  Practice is important and it's key to quickly making progress.  But, the way you think you might need to practice for hours on end is not actually the way I see it.  In this lecture I'll talk about HOW you want to practice and give you plan for applying the new technique you are learning.

05:14

In this lecture I'll talk a little bit more about technique and how it provides an anchor for you.  It's the anchor of technique that will actually give you the confidence to move forward, to give you the confidence to continue applying and putting these voice concepts out into the world.

07:20

In this lecture I'll be giving you an over view of the elements that we need to take a look at, the elements that really create the sound of confidence in your voice.  I'll list these elements here but will go into detail on each one of them below in subsequent lectures.

04:38

In this lecture I'll be talking about perception and how that effects what you do, what you put out into the world.  There is often times mis-perception as to what we think we are doing vs. what is actually being received by our audience.  I'll explain all of that here.

Section 3: Actual Techniques
06:29

In this lecture I'll talk about volume.  Volume is key in sounding more confident.  Volume is often linked to perception and definitely linked to habits.  We'll cover what you are doing, why you are doing it and how to move forward and fix it.

06:03

In this lecture I'll talk about the element of pace.  Pace is key to all of your speaking but really plays a valuable roll in sounding more confident.  Pace is the overall speed at which you speak and it's essential that you understand how to get that set at the rate setting for maximum impact.  I'll teach you how to do that in this lecture.

08:09

In this lecture I talk about the most powerful tool in the vocal variety tool box, the pause.  Pausing is essential to sounding confident because it shows us that you are comfortable in the silence, confident in what you say so much that you can just be quiet.  I'll talk about the why of pausing and will also give you key steps to really get comfortable in the pause.

05:16

In this lecture I talk about stressing words.  Stressing of words is key in sounding confident because it really reflects that you know what you are talking about.  Not stressing words is a big mistake that I see far too many people make.  I'll tell you why it's so important and how to really nail the emphasizing of words to sound the most confident.

05:56

In this lecture I"ll introduce breathing.  Breathing is the hardest thing I teach but it's an essential part of sounding more confident.  Breathing is also a foundation piece is regulating your voice and making a big impact.  This is the introduction or part one of the breathing technique I will teach you.

04:41

In this lecture I'll talk about posture.  I'm not getting deep into body/voice integration in this course, but overall posture can effect how you feel and how you sound.  Posture plays a key role in sounding more confident.  I'll show you what you need to do.

Section 4: Wrap Up
02:42

In this lecture I'll wrap up everything we've talked about in the course.  Just a quick over view of what you've learned and how to move forward applying these techniques.  I'll also discuss what to expect from here as you begin to set these techniques and make them your own.
