January 25, 2021
An internationally renowned and highly sought-after Hollywood voice coach shares proven practices to help anyone utilize the often-untapped power of their own authentic voice.
As the world continues to shift in unexpected ways, now more than ever we need the skills to make a lasting impact when we speak. From a toddler's first words to a speech in front of a large audience, from a marriage proposal to asking for a raise, we are fundamentally verbal animals, using our voices to express ourselves. Yet there has been no authoritative guide to mastering its full capacity, no guide to show us how to utilize our voices to achieve our goals and express our true selves in every aspect of life, from relationships and family to the business arena. Until now.
As one of the nation’s most sought-after vocal coaches, Denise Woods has worked with everyone from Mahershala Ali, Jessica Chastain, Ray Liotta, Kirsten Dunst, Will Smith, Halle Berry, and Idris Elba. In The Power of Voice, Woods looks back on her work with Hollywood’s biggest stars, providing valuable lessons and exercises that all of us can use to overcome common voice and speech problems, and become confident, effective communicators.
With her un-matched ability to teach vocal training in real-world terms, Woods offers a much-needed, proven, practical, and invaluable set of tools that will forever change not only how we communicate but ultimately how we see ourselves.
