Project and Articulate
Think of yourself as the theater actor, everything is a little bit bigger. project like you’re reaching the back row of a theater, articulating what you’re wanting to say, over enunciate. We don’t have the luxury of mumbling with a mask on!
Use Your Facial and Body Language
The eyes are the window to the soul – utilize hands and eyes to accentuate what you can’t see below the mask. Gesticulating – jazz hands, engage your whole body, it’s the theater
Consolidate Your Words
Shorten your sentences if you know you’re someone who likes to talk a lot. Be intentional and take a breath before you speak and conserve your energy.
Intentionalize The Tone
This is the real joy of giving great voice – expressing ourselves in a more intentional way, if we want someone to know we are really glad to see them, we’re going Add More smile, more brightness. Which they will hear and also brighten our eyes, when we smile brighter our eyes smile too and that works in tandom.
Your Mask Can Express Your Personality
Nowadays there are a million masks you can choose from, which is cool! There’s an aspect of wearing a mask that’s intimidating. We’re always sizing people up because we can’t see their whole face. But having some humor in your mask choice can help disarm others and show that you’re trustworthy, warm, safe, and can create more connection. This can also be a conversation starter!
What People Are Saying
Luke - Business Consultant | Writer
Working with Tasia was an absolute pleasure. She is amazing! The Giving Great Voice workshop was eye-opening (voice-opening?). As a result of the experience, my inner dialog has shifted and messaging when speaking with others have been more focused and aligned with my desired outcome based on the “role” I’m playing. I would highly recommend working with Tasia to help you Give Great Voice.
John - Corporate Facilitator
Tasia coached me on Giving Great Voice – one on one. I’m so glad I decided to do it! Tasia is an absolute firecracker! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with her and I’ve learned a tremendous amount; about myself and the way people “hear” me. I cannot recommend her enough. She has an ENORMOUS heart, and she leads with it – very refreshing. I am happy to talk with anyone on the fence about my experience with her.
Kate - Actress | Tour Guide
This class is for more than just public speaking. Yes, it will give you tips on how to properly use your voice in a public or professional setting. However, it will also help you learn techniques to use in your everyday life… You will work on strengthening your mental voice so you can give a good physical voice. When you’re confident in yourself, your voice will be too. If you’ve tried acting or vocal classes and felt you’ve gotten nowhere, take Giving Great Voice. It can literally change your life.
Pete - Voiceover Artist
I would like to thank Tasia on how I changed my vocal approach with broadcasting… Tasia helped me to incorporate Giving Great Voice in my broadcasting and develop a calm and relaxing setting that my viewers can simply enjoy. Matching my voice with calm and serene sounds of the ocean changed my whole experience on Periscope, especially with an increase in viewer numbers and being featured multiple times to thousands of people all around the world!
Kayla - Law Student
Tasia is an incredible voice coach! She is energetic, effective, and inspirational. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a coach. She helped me with my tryout for the trial team at my law school. She really gave me the confidence and the tools to deliver a great performance. I highly recommend her!
Jeffery - Composer | Pianist
I highly recommend Tasia as a teacher for Giving Great Voice. I think a great teacher has to be a great “Sherlock Homles.” Meaning, a teacher has to have the detective skills to diagnosis precisely what the issue is. A great teacher listens and then precisely focuses on where the attention needs to be directed to give the client benefit. Tasia was able to hone in on what my problem was and then offer the solution … and the great bonus with Tasia is that she does it all with warmth, care, and a wonderful smile!
Chana - Director of the Jewish Women’s Initiative
Tasia helps me explore new possibilities for myself to be a more effective speaker and storyteller. Her fun, accepting and creative style makes working with her a joy.
Hulda - Nanny
Tasia has inspired me to be a better person in all areas of my life through her Giving Great Voice program. The first time I met her I was a struggling single mother trying to find a job. Through our work together, Tasia helped me improve my communication skills with others, and has encouraged me to pursue and conquer my dreams. She has helped me in many ways and I will always be truly grateful for the opportunity to work with her.
Mary Jo - Voiceover Artist
In one word, it would be “well-balanced”. Tasia was committed and dedicated to helping us improve. You could see the wheels turning in her head to come up with the right words of direction, and she succeeded. At the same time, she was down-to-earth and fun. My favorite memory was simply the way she loosened us up after lunch – by dancing around crazily to the tune of “It’s Raining Men”! … I would take another class from her!
Gaby - Caretaker
Working with Tasia has given me more confidence in myself and how I communicate with others. I used to be shy and afraid to speak. I felt tiny, and scared. Tasia has empowered me to use my voice, to listen, and to be listened to. She gave me a great voice, a voice that I didn’t know I could use, with confidence and trust. Now, I feel secure, confident, and happy. Thank you, Tasia, you have empowered me to live in the present, I’m so grateful that you helped me change my life for the better!
Bonnie - Voiceover Artist
My first session with Tasia was truly an eye-opener! She showed me how to approach copy in ways I had never thought of before, all while doing it in such an encouraging manner. I feel more confident in myself and my voice, and can’t wait to work with her again!
Leni - Holistic Healer
I loved the workshop. I was so moved by everyone’s integrity and support! Tasia so perfectly encouraged both humor as well as deep wisdom. Her grounded teaching offered a strong platform for us as artists, as well as women, to re-wire ourselves and bring some of our deeper and more personal gifts into direct relationship with our own abilities to create.
Mark - Voiceover Artist
Thank you so much for the amazing class last night! My favorite part was looking at character intentions and what I bring to the character given my experiences. The reads were a lot of fun and Tasia gave great direction to help really draw out the classes’ best reads. Can’t wait for the next one!
Billie - Voiceover Artist
I’ve been to quite a few workshops and VO events but this one inspired me into action… and I haven’t stopped, nor will I. The generosity of spirit and willingness to share was amazing and to be with other like-minded creatives… awesome.
