Vocal Training

Typically clients know their subject matter but lack the delivery and vocal skills necessary to make their message direct and empowering.  Ms. Verdun trains clients from all backgrounds and professional levels to speak with clarity, confidence and a pleasant vocal tone. 

Clients learn a life-changing set of tools and capabilities that cause transformative changes within short periods of time. Voicetrainer LLC’s unique services integrate multiple disciplines including speech physiology, voice therapy, biofeedback and communications consulting.

 

How Vocal Training Works

Your ninety minute assessment includes audio analysis, goal setting and the development of your personalized vocal training program.  During this visit, Ms. Verdun performs an acoustic analysis of your vocal tone, an assessment of your breathing, diction, intonation and body language.  Together, Laura and you discuss what you like and don't like about the sound of your voice and compare your vocal and breath information to age and sex-matched norms. Following the consultation, you will receive written analysis of  your voice,  breath, diction, intonation and body language and an Action Plan to meet your training objectives.  Actual training begins during your initial assessment.   

Follow-up training, is conducted in line with your personalized plan. During training, weekly communication is recommended so that your progress can be monitored.
