Tracy Goodwin

May 03 2016

Welcome to the show! The voice is the orchestra of the heart. The words are everything and they are nothing, it's how we bring them to life that make people feel something.

I'm really excited about the concept I'm going to talk about today. Vocal variety and how it's essential to captivate your audience, or your customer! This is one of my all time favorite voice topics and I really love to teach it. Now, we won't go into all the elements specifically today, but be on the lookout for more individual episode's where I teach you step by step how to add in each variety element.

People miss variety for a number of reasons. Perception, that they think they are doing it is a big one. Other factors are patterns that get in the way or go to's relying on the same variety element and thinking your making a big impact when you really are doing the same element over and over.

There are five elements of vocal variety. If you play all of them, you play a full orchestra, the orchestra of the heart for that matter. But, most people just play one, or two or they get a little bit louder on their voice pattern.

The five elements of vocal variety, I'll teach you today are:



Speed variables

Pace variables and Pitch variables.

I'll also talk about how to use variety and why it's so key. More specific details of each element will come in future episodes.

Vocal variety is really important! It's in the variety that you touch our senses and in turn affect our emotions.

I can't wait for you take a listen!
