Discover the 5voices approach to voice training

From our beginnings, our 5voices training has helped hundreds of teachers and lecturers harness the variety in their voices to engage their students, improve learning outcomes and push on in their academic careers.  

We’ve helped university leaders and headteachers support their teachers with voice issues, keep them working and help them become more effective in the classroom or lecture theatre.

Now, we use the same approach to show managers, team leaders and business analysts – anyone who uses their voice to be more persuasive and engaging – to get results in a corporate environment. This may mean better presentations, greater influence and control over their career path – all through mastering your voice.

And we can help you too.

By engaging with our 5voices training and resources, you can learn how to effectively use your voice during lectures and seminars, as well as protect it from damage and strain.  By learning about the five different voices, trying our practical exercises and following the advice within our resource materials, you can use your voice to make your teaching environment a well-controlled, stimulating and enjoyable place for you and your students to be.

At its core, The 5voices is about identifying and learning to execute different tones of voice for the environment you find yourself in.

Our training teaches you how to vary your voice to suit different situations using specific vocal techniques. It also introduces the basic vocal techniques of postural alignment, breath support, resonance and articulation. Our students come away from our training with a voice that is not only more authoritative and interesting to listen to, but is healthy, strong and flexible – a voice that will support you throughout your career.
