Foreword by Academy Award-winner Mahershala Ali
An internationally renowned and highly sought-after Hollywood voice coach shares proven practices to help anyone utilize the often-untapped power of their own authentic voice.
From a toddler's first words to professional public speaking, from a marriage proposal to asking for a raise, our voice is our most crucial instrument of expression. The world judges us by our voice. And yet there has been no authoritative guide to mastering its full capacity and expressing our true selves in every aspect of life, from relationships and family to work. Until now.
As one of the nation’s most sought-after vocal coaches, Denise Woods has worked with everyone from Mahershala Ali, Will Smith, and Idris Elba to Kirsten Dunst and Jessica Chastain. In The Power of Voice, for the first time ever, Woods shares the secrets, tips, lessons, and stories that have helped Hollywood’s biggest stars become confident, effective communicators.
Readers will learn how to:
Gain confidence in any situation
Release tension and stress
Address speech issues such as upspeak, vocal fry, and nasality
Become powerful public speakers
Find their truest form of expression
With her unmatched ability to teach vocal mastery in real-world terms, Woods offers a much-needed, proven, practical, and invaluable set of tools that will forever change how we communicate and, ultimately, how we see ourselves and affect others.
“As as woman of color, I can’t think of anything more meaningful than knowing the importance and power of my own voice. Denise has helped me understand how to use my voice and how to ensure that my authenticity is heard. In The Power of Voice, Denise describes the voice as a super power, we are as powerful as we allow our voices to be.”—Academy-Award winning actor Halle Berry
