Vocal Color—Pacing and Phrasing

Lecture no. 18 from the course: Mastering Stage Presence: How to Present to Any Audience

Vocal Color—Pacing and Phrasing

Taught by Professor Melanie M. Long | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Learn to keep your audience engaged using the rhythms of speech. Begin by studying pace, how vocal pace affects listeners, and how variety of pace aids clarity and communication. Then learn about phrasing—how you group words and punctuate your speech with pauses—and ways to improve phrasing and change limiting speech habits.
