Arthur Joseph, MA,
Founder of the Vocal Awareness Institute
Arthur Joseph is a master teacher/strategist to Hollywood celebrities such as Quincy Jones, Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Pierce Brosnan, and corporate giants Disney, Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Toyota, and Universal Studios. He is the author of three books, a former University of Southern California professor, visiting artist at Yale and George Washington Universities, and is on the faculty of City of New York Graduate Extension Program. He has studied the physical, emotional and psychological aspects of the human voice for more than 40 years.
"Arthur Joseph started as a teacher of mine years ago. Over these years, he has become a good friend whose teachings of Vocal Awareness have become a constant in my life. He enlightens with compassion and understanding of the human spirit and above all else, it works." - Pierce Brosnan, Actor
"If you're searching for the power within, through Vocal Awareness, you can find the sound of your soul." - Quincy Jones, Musician, Composer, Producer
Arthur teaches, "Your voice is your identity. It can tell people everything about who you are, how you feel about yourself and what you believe in. Vocal Awareness is a complete system for mastering your voice and integrating it into your life. Your voice has the power to instantly reach out and connect with people. Vocal Awareness is about developing this power through Self-awareness--learning to consciously express your Self easily and precisely."
During this program, learn to enhance your Vocal Presence:
- Identify how you want to be perceived.
- Don’t "present" who you are — "Be" who you are.
- Remember the adage, "breath is fuel". You have to breathe efficiently if you want to speak effectively.
- To find your optimal pitch level ("the hub of your voice," your core sound,) — gently descend on the sound of hmm. Where hmm ends is from where you speak.
- Sing a lot. Singing is a creative way to enhance your vocal range, power, and color.
- Realize that any professional encounter should be considered "a performance."
- Take conscious ownership of ever verbal encounter. Take your time.
- Only 8% of all verbal communication is retained by the listener’s unconscious mind through the words themselves; 37% is conveyed through the sound of the voice; 55% is body language. Think stature.
- A great deal can be learned from objective and deeper listening.
- Create rituals, a daily structure to help you achieve your desired professional and communication goals.
