Vocal Coaching Italiano

You cannot change your voice if you cannot change yourself.

Facial expression

The face speaks

Facial expression translates the thought or feeling deep inside a person into something readable by an observer. On the other hand if you think about our physiological growth, we all developed our senses in a specific order, starting from hearing. Listening is far from there. Touch, feeling, sight and sense take the precedence! They are all senses that enable us to recognize and interact with the world as to what we like and what we do not like. It is not surprising when a baby in a cot smiles back at a smiling face and begins to cry in front of an angry face.

Essentially, we learn to react to what we see and feel first rather than what we "hear". In fact, language is a layer of communication that has evolved after hearing, which requires the use of the grey matter of the brain, while "feeling" is part of the reptilian part of our brain: an instinct, a sixth sense.

When we receive a verbal message, we always interpret it whilst being accompanied by different non-verbal language that we process unconsciously, that is what we report as a "sixth sense". In reality, it is not actually an abstract or paranormal perception, we simply decoded signals of the face based on our previous experience.

This step is essential to achieve effective communication, and, as you may have guessed, requires a journey of personal growth and not a just voice.

Mixed messages

When the message expressed through language, by voice, carries a different meaning from the one sent by the expression of the face, the brain tries to identify the best sense. If the face says "I'm not interested" and the voice says "I care", our brains will give priority to visual messages and not to auditory, therefore, we pick up a "lie." In fact, it may be that the person was just worried about making a fool of themselves and was not lying, but unconsciously we classified it as not very "reliable."

Only a qualified Vocal Coach can teach you how to manage all these aspects of vocality, which, as you will see, is not limited to a single voice, but is a world much more extensive and complex than initially believed.
