Acting Lessons Produce Better Communicators for Careers!

January 24, 2012

A trained voice is one that will get you a lot more places than you might have imagined. Think of the many places of value where you might fit as someone who stands out in a crowd vocally. This is not only about singing. There are many suave speakers with an innate power of their voice that have polished sets of skills.
How many of us grew up with the monotone school teacher who lectured without so much as flinching in expression? (Bueller? Ferris Bueller?) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxPVyieptwA

On the other hand, I bet we all know people who are such great storytellers that we can’t wait to hear what they have got to say next. Generally, the latter group paid close attention to other people who were fun and interesting to listen to and then honed those skills.
Acting lessons are a great place to begin to gain these skills. This is a place where we begin to give distinct personality to a voice and help you to stand out in a crowd as a performer, storyteller, speaker, and teacher. Acting lessons are a fun, non-threatening way to gain insight and innovation to move you to being the “go to” person within your organization. You will learn voice modulation techniques as well as physical movement so that your messages come across more clearly.
These skills are used by celebrities, film and TV personalities, business professionals, educators, public speakers, ministers, broadcast journalists, musical theatre performers, radio personalities, stand-up comics, talk show hosts, beauty pageant contestants, musicians, vocalists, choir members, etc. All must be able to clearly communicate points of view and key information to audiences. These skills also help you in your every day life as you develop ways of being better understood with what is being said. Dedication in your work brings so many possibilities in their careers.
To become successful and effective we must develop the full potential of your vocal skills and qualities. You must become an expert communicator and storyteller. The good news is that it can be done in a fun environment. We will work on sharp observation and active listening skills. These make you stand out as the strong, caring communicator you will become.
We will also work on shifting focus. This is the difference of moving your own personal focus from what you have to say to how well the information is being received and understood on the receiving end. You will also begin to feel more connected as you go through various stages in getting established from meetings and workshops to auditions and interviews. This will help to heighten your awareness of the impact you have on others. This will also help you shift your focus from being self-conscious to audience-awareness when you perform or speak and will make you more comfortable at any meet and greet type opportunities.
