On Air with Ella - podcast episode 283

voice coach susan murphy on air with ella


Your voice is a powerful force to express yourself, to relay emotion, tell stories, and to communicate far more than words alone can. Susan Murphy teaches us how to access our most authentic voice, with a beautiful pitch and tone, all through breath work and a dash of psychology!

In this episode:

  • Women often don't consistently use their authentic voice

  • The reasons we don't use our authentic voice often goes back to childhood

  • Public speaking tips and why this is especially important for women - at home, in the workplace, on Zoom...

  • Aggressive vs assertive

  • Channeling our resonance from bottom of the diaphragm

  • It's all about posture (shoulders!) and breath

  • Projecting isn’t about volume

  • Why we don't even talk to children in a baby voice (except dogs, obviously)

  • Tips for dealing with vocal fry, nasal voices

  • Practice out loud! Try your Voice Memo app, ...or msybe start a podcast? ; - )
