Make a start on using your voice more effectively and safely in the classroom

Your free introduction to Better Voice for Teachers

What are the next steps?

Once you can hum correctly, the exercises in Part One will teach you in stages how to go from that simple hum through to normal speech, while always keeping the head focus of your voice. 

You’ll learn to:

  • Hum on a range of comfortable notes and to move from one note to another.
  • Progress from a hum to sounds with your mouth open.
  • Move between different notes with your mouth open, helped by the hum and different ‘friendly’ consonants (m, n, w).
  • Form words, using phrases with friendly consonants.
  • Switch your Better Voice on and off - as you do when speaking - without the help of a hum or consonants.
  • Start to use your Better Voice automatically when speaking.

You’ll also learn more about the power of helpful visualizations when using your voice, including the importance of seeing your voice as horizontal not vertical. Neurologists have shown that the brain can’t tell the difference between what’s real and what’s imagined - which is why everyone from elite athletes to entrepreneurs now uses visualization to help achieve their goals.

An improved voice – however you’re using it

The exercises might sound a bit like singing. Actually they’re just the best and easiest way to start learning the Better Voice technique, and they’re all designed to work on your voice for speaking.  Interesting speaking voices use up to 15 notes, which is more than in many songs. 

They work so well because, though most people don’t realize it:

You have only one voice – not two different ones for speaking and singing.

Singing is just speaking on a flow of a larger range of notes and (usually) with longer vowels.

But you certainly don’t need to be a singer to do the exercises successfully. They’re all very simple and you don’t need to be ‘in tune’.

If you are a singer, Better Voice will also improve your singing and you’ll get a double benefit! Or you might discover you’re a better singer than you thought:
