Developing Your Voice

 

 

AccentHelp coach Jim Johnson has written this text to help you explore and develop your voice. Though packed with information and exercises, it keeps a lighter tone, making it more accessible. But you do have to put up with Jim's lame jokes. Suffer as you learn.

 

The download comes with the entire ebook in both PDF and Kindle format, along with the audiobook recording so that you can use whichever works best for you.

 

The book includes links to lots of videos that walk you through principles and exercises. 

 

Jim goes into the science of how the voice works, and leads you through exercises that trigger improvements as you make your way through ideas on increasing your resonance to develop a rounder tone to your voice, getting your breath flowing properly to make your voice work optimally, and expanding your pitch range to be more expressive overall.
