Your whole body is involved in producing a good voice. Take some text and stand up and read it while standing completely still. Now take the same text and read it with a little movement in your body. Wiggle your spine and swing to and fro slightly as if you were moving to the sounds of a favorite song on the radio. If this seems silly to you, ask yourself “Can you sing without movement?” Try it. Stand completely still, don’t move a muscle, and attempt to sing. You’ll find that you can hardly get the notes out. Now move and sing. The notes are free. The same thing is true of the spoken voice. You need to move to have a voice that “Moves” people!
In addition to training the voices of hundreds of people, Charles Michel has been an actor, singer, character voice performer and voice-over announcer.

The fact that Charles records each training session and then gives me a copy of the recording is also really helpful as it allows me to review the lesson at my leisure, and then practice what was learned in the lesson.
