The Winning Voice Weekly Tips

"Up and in"!

Microphone Technique:
If you are like most people you are probably not projecting your voice effectively for the microphone. Generally, folks attempt projecting forward in an effort to reach and fill the microphone with sound. What you should be doing is actually just the opposite. You should be taking your sound “UP AND IN” to your body instead of pushing it out at the microphone. This will create a voice that is richer and less shrill with almost no vocal wear and tear. Very importantly for the microphone, you will eliminate the popping of any “P” sound and the hissing of any sibilant “S”. Unskilled voice projection and microphone technique that incorporates an “UP AND IN” approach are as different as screaming is from singing. The first is noise, the latter…music! ( “UP AND IN” is one of many techniques specifically developed and coined by Charles Michel for Voice Over Training.)




In addition to training the voices of hundreds of people, Charles Michel has been an actor, singer, character voice performer and voice-over announcer.

Charles, thank You so much for your patience and your expertise. The demo sounds great and it is all because of you!  If I ever earn an award for voice over work (is there one?) you’re at the top of my gratitude list.
