Sounding Authentic e-class
Sounding authentic? That phrase caught my imagination immediately and got me thinking, "what in the world does authenticity sound like?" So I thought I would find out by taking the class. Led by voice coach Katherine Scott, so far it is a bit of a surprise. Instead of focusing solely on the physics of the voice and on the spoken word, as Toastmasters does, the class also includes a good deal of psychological examination. Focusing on your response to voice, your own as well as others, is an important part of the class. There is also time spent on your belief and perceptions about your voice and powerful statements of intention to improve your voice. I have mostly expressed my creativity by visual means and I love the addition of the study of voice and sound.
