Preview 02:22

Step #1 - "INHALE"
1 Lecture 07:24

The #1 Step is INHALE.  Visualizing breath as vital energy will give you an edge over other singers and speakers.  You need energy to get your message across to your listener.  Most people don't breath correctly, and in this video you'll learn exactly what you have to do, and how you have to do it, to maximize the oxygen that you bring in to power your voice.

Preview 07:24

Let's see what you've learned about Step #1 "Inhale".

Are You Breathing Correctly?

Step #2 - "ENGAGE"
1 Lecture 07:42

Step # 2 is ENGAGE.  If you want a dynamic voice, the diaphragm is the powerhouse engine that gives you maximum control and volume.  Your throat is never the engine.  Learn how to harness the power of your body, and become aware of how to use proper, conscious breathing to engage the diaphragm for a strong, reliable speaking and singing voice.

Step #3 - "RELEASE"
2 Lectures 14:02

Step #3 is RELEASE.  In order to get volume, many people 'push' their voices, putting too much force on the vocal cords.  This is not good, and can cause vocal damage over time, not to mention a chronically hoarse throat.

In Step #3 you're going to learn the big difference between 'pushing' and 'releasing' the voice.  When you begin to feel and hear the difference in those two, and finally 'let the voice go' you will discover how easy it is to produce a solid, powerful sound without strain or effort!  When you 'release' the voice you've come full circle with the 3 Step Prep System for Voice.
