Voice and pronunciation.

Simply sounding better.

The voice is one of our most important means of expression in all areas of life. Often underestimated, an incredible amount of your daily life depends on it: Could you continue to do your job without your voice? Could you maintain your private relationships to the same extent without your voice? Many people do not even know how important their voice is in everyday life and how much the other person picks up and interprets just through the cues given by our voice, regardless of what we are saying on a content level. We need to understand voice as a valuable tool that needs its own attention and care. In the coaching I will help you to get to know your voice better, to get a feeling for how and when you can use your voice sensibly and make it sound powerful with the least possible effort. In addition, I support non-native speakers in developing correct standard German and/or (BBC-)English pronunciation.
