Feel confident with your voice Melissa Agnew


Pleasant, healthy, flexible vocal tone and clear speech are the foundations of a good voice. Build strength, expressiveness and a connection to language on those foundations, and you have an excellent voice.

For a savvy speaker, the voice is a powerful conduit of expression and a tool of persuasion. A good voice singles you out from the crowd. It suggests that you are intelligent, interesting, important and likeable. People of all ages like to listen to nice voices.

Actors, broadcasters and public speakers (politicians, corporate managers, teachers and so on) have a special responsibility to use their voices well. Whether you are an experienced professional or just starting out, Melissa Agnew can help you to sound your best.
