What is your voice saying about you?
Your unique voice—its volume, tone, and pitch—is the invisible key to a good first impression. But stress can cause your voice to falter—right when you need to speak up! Now, breath therapist and music teacher Jutta Ritschel offers 65 easy exercises
to keep your voice always
well-tuned—whether you’re rehearsing a speech or performance, or simply seeking your most confident self.
Stretch like a cat: Free tense muscles, widen your rib cage, and breathe deeply.
Read aloud: Practice expressing emotion!
Befriend your voice: Hear the difference between how you sound to yourself and to others.
Most important of all, you’ll learn to find comfort in silence—and hear your inner
voice before you speak.
