Exploring the Voice of Storytelling

This Week’s Episode:

Everything about voice ties into storytelling. From the tone expressed to even the decibel used in certain parts of a story, voice has a huge impact in giving meaning and feeling to the tales we tell. You’re in for a treat today as my guest Dan Teadt, a voice coach and performance expert, always provides an audience with plenty to chew on whether he’s working at Carnegie Mellon University, working with clients across the globe, or doing a podcast interview.

In this episode, Dan and I cover a ton of information in such a short amount of time. Among the topics we tackle: sound ethics and embracing the flaws and faults in our voices, the effect of vocal work and sound on communication, the importance of using breathwork as part of voice training, and finding the little things you enjoy doing as a storyteller. You’ll hear about the advice Dan gives to people who aren’t fond of the sound of their own voices. Along the way, he provides several exercises and tips for warming up and helping to sustain your voice.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • How someone finds their authentic sound
  • How to warm up your vocal instrument
  • How to take smart care of your voice
