Course description

The anxiety most often is associated with public speaking can be translated into thoughts like these:

“I won’t be convincing, they won’t understand, they’ll be bored, they’ll think that I’m not a good communicator, I’ll blush during the interview, my voice will tremble, I’ll have nervous body language, they’ll know that I’m anxious, they’ll think poorly of me, and their negative observations will affect my career..”

From an article by Silvia Sperandio – May 14, 2014 – Il Sole 24 Ore

Fear of the public can be caused by a lack of knowledge of:

  1. mechanics of the vocal instrument
  2. interpretation and expressive style appropriate to the context of the performance
  3. how to manage one’s emotions and mental processes
