The Glorious Human Voice

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Mastering Stage Presence: How to Present to Any Audience

The Glorious Human Voice

Taught by Professor Melanie M. Long | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

In this first session on vocal technique, take a tour of the physical mechanisms of sound and speech. Practice free and expansive breathing, and experiment with the principles of phonation (sound production) and resonation (sound amplification). Conclude by exploring articulation—how speech shapes sound into words.
