Public Speaking Lessons

Speak Like Nobody’s Watching

Public Speaking is about telling your story, explaining a point of view, describing a moment in time and delivering a message in front of an audience. My public speaking lessons help improve your tone, range, clarity, and projection as well as stance, stage presence and body language. I teach you how to practice and present by getting you out of your own way so you can find your true voice and conquer stage fright.

Perfect for meetings, auditions, speeches, recordings and presentations.

Tips

You are never too old to learn to sing.

No one cares about your mistakes more than you.

Mumblers are never taken seriously. Open your mouth and people will listen.

It’s not about you, its about connecting with the audience.

To avoid vocal fatigue, warm up hours before your performance.

Practice everyday in front of a full length mirror.

If you’re trying to think of what to say next, then you are not listening.

Exercise/energize hours before you perform. Run, swim, yoga etc.

If you are talking over someone else, then you are not listening.

Stay focused on your goals.

It’s better to hit a wrong note than to make excuses.

Bigger is better. Don’t hold back!

bigger

Listen to yourself. Appreciate the good, fix the bad.

Focus on the message and stage fright becomes less important.

Relax, slow down, take your time and don’t rush. Less is more!

Don’t stop just because you made a mistake. Keep going!

Sing every day.

Practice daily in the shower. The steam helps open up your sinuses.

Have a cold? Drink warm liquids and rest before you perform.

Everyone has a talent. Many choose to ignore it.

Singing is storytelling. Singers are storytellers.

Storytelling

Wanna hit that high note? Try opening your mouth!

Listening is equally as important as singing or speaking. Be teachable!

When you perform, Smile! If you think you’ll look silly then consider what it looks like when when all you do is frown.

Smile

To loosen up, dance while you practice your song/speech.

To become a better singer, immerse yourself in music.

You can only teach yourself so much before you hit a wall.

Smiling opens the sides of your mouth and helps with projection.

Drink water. Stay hydrated!

Be patient with yourself and you will learn faster.

Humming is an excellent vocal warm up.

Participate in open mics, karaokes, spoken word, poetry jams and improv.

Use stage fright to your advantage. The more scared you are, the bigger you should be.

Stage Fright

Be teachable.
