Projection is so important

Projection is so important. But what is it and how can we all learn to project our voices better?

 

1)      It’s about AUDIBILITY
So your breath needs to be strong, secure and supported by the abdominal muscles

The breath also needs to be powerful enough to reach the front of your mouth

2)      Its about INTELLIGIBILITY

The pace, pitch, volume, stress, inflection, tone colour and pausing according to the emotion and thought being expressed

Clarity of speech (the muscles in the lips and the tongue need to be engaged to get precise articulation)

3)      It’s about MENTAL PROJECTION

In other words engaging the audience by commanding their attention, which ensures that the emotion of the words is conveyed clearly
