There you have it – a basic introduction to using your voice.
It’s been based upon exercises that we use in our live training.
(By the way, create a note of caution about what you can have achieved – this isn’t the be-all and end-all, by any means!)
You’ve learned the three parts to your voice and gone over exercises to develop them, Power, Generation and Control. You’ve brought them all together and had a practice.
Carry on practicing!
Think of it like this… when you were learning to drive a car or ride a bike (or whatever!) you spent all your mental energy on driving the car (that is, not crashing!). If someone spoke to you while you were driving, your brain melted. Now, though, I’m pretty sure you can drive and talk; that’s because you’ve spent enough time and energy driving to be able to do it without thinking about it. You’ve become, in the jargon, unconsciously competent – you don’t need to think about it consciously.
Do the same with your speaking. Practice. Practice until you can do things without thinking about them so that, like driving, you can then concentrate on what it is you want to say, and you can let the mechanics take care of themselves.
