The Sonic Components of Voice

Here we will focus on the actual sonic aspects of your voice and how you can mindfully use them to refine your teaching. These are:

  1. Cadence (e.g. intonation, inflection of the voice)
  2. Tone (e.g. pitch, quality and strength of the voice)
  3. Energy
  4. Volume

You can learn to be more conscious about your voice while teaching. And there are things you can do to beforehand as well. See below for details.
