  • Penny,

    Thanks for adding me in. After you mentioned the site during last weeks SIC call with Susan Berkley, I figured I'd check it out. Hopefully, this is one of those sites where I'll be able to grow old and gray... :-)
  • Thanks for the add Penny!
  • Thnx so much Penny for your wonderful advice...You are such a sweetheart...
    I'll surely follow your advice & will get back to update you about the progress.
    Keep inspiring the world...
  • Hi Gaurav,

    Yes, I think I can help you. I have a similar problem once in a while. I generally hear from my director, “You’re going a little throaty – or raspy.” I find it happens most when I am tired or after I have eaten anything with milk in it.
    Here are several things I do that seem to help.

    1. I avoid dairy products when I know I will be recording.

    2. I get plenty of rest.

    3. When I feel myself going too low in my voice register, I use this physical exercise as I am performing: I stand up very straight and tall, lifting my chest, and opening my lungs. Sometimes, I even raise up on my toes a little to get a slightly higher pitch in my voice. I “think” higher by imagining my voice higher in my head.

    4. I make sure to stand – rather than sit. When I’m doing something very long, I will lean against a stool. If I sit, it seems to make the problem worse.

    5. I use olive oil to coat my throat and mouth. I know it sounds strange, but this is an amazing tool. Singers use it a lot before performances. Just take about a tablespoon, swish it around in your mouth and then swallow. It isn’t the best tasting thing in the world – but it’s not the worst and it truly works.

    See if any of these help you and let me know, will you? Learning to place your voice in a different place in your body is a skill and it can be learned.

    Best of luck!

  • Hi Penny ! Hope u remember me!
    ok...i'll need ur advice on a small issue...U see..i m basically into narration based voice overs.

  • Thank you Penny, that's very sweet of you to say so :-) I don't do on-camera work.....way to shy for that!

    Thanks for the warm welcome :-)
  • Thanks for the warm welcome Penny!
    Perhaps we'll get the chance to meet at Voice 2008.

  • Good day to Penny!

    Have you tried your Pimms yet? Finally summer has arrived here and I am popping off to get a bottle right now! It will surely lubricate the tonsils for the rather dull corporate I have to record this evening!

    And your Britspeak lesson for the day as delivered by Eliza Doolittle is.....The Rain in Spain stays mainly in the plains.....Practice, and see me after class.

    Have a spiffing weekend old bean.

  • Penny - It seems like there is more opportunity online than ever before, so location doesn't seem to be as important. Thanks again for the nice welcome. Jane
  • Hey Penny, just wanted to say that my demos are audible now...they uploaded in an incompatible format before (in case you tried to hear me)...thx! T
