Today’s podcast topic is one of the nearest and dearest to my heart: your voice. So it is an honor that on this episode you’ll be hearing the deeply resonant and soulful voice of my colleague Lynn Singer. In her decades of studying and teaching acting and voicework in New York City, Lynn has worked with some of the greatest personalities in the world. But though she’s learned with some of the best, Lynn’s approach to voice training is fully and uniquely her own. Listen as Lynn shares about how truth comes from vulnerability and why accessing our emotional life is crucial, whether we’re performing or speaking to our loved ones. PLUS Lynn will reveal the actor Richard Burton’s 3 Secrets of Language - the vocal techniques that catapulted him to fame.
