Episode 25

Geeking Out about the Voice with Michèle and Matthew

Published on: 24th May, 2024

When I first invited my dear friend, speech language pathologist Matthew Brown, onto the podcast, we talked about how singing has helped him maintain his equilibrium through emotional challenges. In the interest of fairness, I agreed to give Matthew a chance to ask questions of me! This time, we discussed the challenges I help my students face, and how their journeys compare to the often scary work Matthew’s patients have to do when they’re rehabilitating from brain injury. I find the parallels between those experiences fascinating, and I hope you do, too!

Episode 18, Singing Through Grief, is my conversation with Matthew about his spiritual practice of singing the Psalms. https://mvmusik.com/blog/cant-wait-to-hear-you-episode-18

Does singing feel so difficult, painful, or embarrassing that you hide it from the people you love? Does speaking feel scratchy, exhausting, breathless, or forced?

It doesn't have to be that way. Your voice can sound and feel amazing, even in stressful situations. You just need to know how to use it.

Singer and voice teacher Michèle Voillequé teaches the art and science of sounding and feeling the best you can. If you love the sound of your ideas, but hate the sound of your voice, be sure to subscribe to Can’t Wait to Hear You.
