In the Julie Brown Voice studio not only do I give tools to help students sing their best I also teach them the skills to help them speak their best. Clarity of sound in speech is just as powerful and profound as a clear resonant singing voice. It catches the full undivided attention of the audience, be it one person or in front of thousands.
Singing and Speaking are ONE.
Singing is speaking in slow motion on chosen pitch. It truly reflects who you are. When people speak in a quiet, dull, monotone manner, others make judgments and assume the speaker has no confidence. The fact is they speak out of habit or out of just not being aware.
Inattention: I help you become aware! You will become conscience of the mechanics of proper sound production in singing and speech. It is a matter of technique. My one of a kind methodology of accessing your particular style through my Julie Brown Acapelladiva instant analysis will be able to determine your mechanical issues and what is impairing the production of resonant, clear, confident sound.
Call it a Catch-22 or domino effect, but it really is based on an ever increasing negative feedback loop. One can become shy and lose confidence if they are not heard the way they want to be heard or worse yet are totally ignored.
A clear, resonant, confident voice can have profound effects. I have students who have found their speaking voice using the Acapelladiva Method and have ended up with job promotions, winning law cases, increased sales quotas, and marketing wins; actors and voice over actors and actresses who have more command of their role with the tools to help them access a variety of characters and take on leading film roles; even moms and dads who tell me that their children respond better and listen when they give them instructions in a newfound resonant voice, as children are the best listeners and a child’s ear can hear tones and inflection better than adults.
Case in point, I commanded the full attention of both my first grade class and my university Music History class because I spoke and speak like the way I sing: With proper sound production clarity and phrasing.
You might say that I have an unfair advantage with 20 years of training, practice, and instruction, but that is exactly why I say you can do this. I will give you the tools and instruction to help you access your true best voice. Remember, speaking and singing are one.
We love to hear clear supported expressive voices when either spoken or sung. We have embedded in our minds timeless speeches such as: Martin Luther King’s “I have dream..”, or and Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “All we have to fear it fear itself..” , or JFK’s “Ask not what your country can do for you…” These speakers expressively varied their voice in pitch, tone and meter, and expression. Their mind and voices are one.
It is the dynamic speaker who conveys power and confidence by varying pitch, intonation, inflection and expression. A monotone speaking voice loses an audience’s attention just as quickly as an unphrased, unsupported, incorrectly produced singing voice does. Why not incorporate both these tools to access your best voice, increase your confidence, and expand your aura of influence, and banish your shyness.
Yes, I used to be shy.. Once I began to sing, I found my voice! This comes in handy above and beyond the rest of your life. If you want to be heard, never underestimate your power.. the power of your voice. I help you recognize your strengths, and using my method helps you realize and access your full potential. Quit underestimating your power. Live consciously, you have access to the tools to be heard. We all have a voice! Make your voice be heard! Let it reflect you! Sing and Speak your best!!
