Whether you speak for a living, give an occasion dinner speech, or an event, you need to take care of the tool of your trade: your voice. The tradesman keeps his tools sharp, the computer programmer keeps their computer running smooth, and the writer keeps their mind sharp and flowing with ideas. The sharper and more skilled you are with your tools, the easier and more effective your trade is. The speaker’s tools are their mind, their voice, and their body. In this segment, we will be teaching about your voice.

Your voice is unique. There is no one else who has your voice. If a voice print was done on you, you would see that there are many waves on the graphic voice print. There are high points and low points in the sound waves. This represents the many levels and dimensions that are in your voice. There is a difference between your voice and your speaking style and regional accent. And yes…everyone has an accent. This is about the sound of your voice.

A great way to put all this into practice is to record yourself and listen to how you sound. Do you like it? If you don’t, you can change it with vocal training. This is not to be confused with musical vocal training with a musical voice coach. There aren’t many speaking-voice coaches out there, but they do exist. You can find them at professional speaking organizations. It is an investment that you cannot afford to do without if you want to be the best possible speaker you can be, especially if you want to make a living or an impact with your voice.

In the BM English Course participants do exercise to develop the quality of voice based on the four parameters – pitch, pace, pause and voice modulation.
