Online Teaching: Gaining Confidence and Poise

Feeling a bit overwhelmed, and intimidated, at the idea of online meetings and classrooms? You aren’t alone. Many have suddenly found themselves working on online platforms and it isn’t always an easy transition! There are specific, and unique, challenges presented with online meetings. These challenges can be easily met with some simple guidance. This class will help you: genuinely connect to your audience, get basic techniques for success in leading a meeting or class, create an experience that is productive for you and the listener, feel more at ease talking to people on screen, keep your voice active, clear, and commanding attention.

We meet Wednesday evenings from 6pm – 7pm – April 15th, 22nd, 29th, and May 6th, 2020

Link to register below. Zoom link given at time of registration.

**This is a Group Class. Looking for private coaching for a specific project? Sign up for a private session here.

 

Online Courses

Online Courses!

A deeper journey into Vocal Embodiment or Accent Acquisition. For four months you will be guided through in the understanding and application of voice and/or speech to enrich your professional and/or personal goals.

Each course includes pre-recorded video lessons, bi-weekly online classes via Zoom, handouts, homework, access to a private page to share resources, and more!

Receive personalized instruction and guidance in the bi-weekly Zoom classes. Enjoy prompts in every lesson to deepen your learning through journaling, “homework” assignments aimed to help you bring the work into your dialy life, and questions that will lead you to an increasing awareness of how there are opportunities for greater success through these simple exercises in Voice and Speech.

The approaches are esoteric in nature, meaning; they explain WHY certain exercises work from a physiological point of view. They take the mystery out of the work so that you can begin to truly master your own transformative journey. Then we apply the esoteric understanding to real life activity. The result? Your skill increases dramatically, and in a relatively short period of time.

The steps are small but the progress is large! You will have me, a Voice and Speech expert, with you every step of the way.

Register now and start learning today.
