A Special Weekend Workshop
cancelled for insufficient enrollment
Are you an Attorney? Politician? Teacher? Lecturer? Salesperson? Do you have trouble being heard? Are you often asked to repeat yourself? No matter what your particular discipline, if you speak for a living, this workshop will help you find your naturally full speaking voice.
Those who often experience vocal fatigue, hoarseness, soreness, or other vocal problems will also find solutions to some of their problems.
"The first time I talked to Marty he only heard my voice over the phone and said, ‘I know exactly what your problem is' and ... he was right. A few tips on posture and breathing and I had my voice back. "

"I had always had trouble using my public voice correctly, as it would easily tire and weaken. When I lost my voice as a result of strenuous singing in mid-summer 2003, I was silent for three months I didn't think I would ever have the vocal strength to return to my career as a teacher. I was wrong.|
"I began lessons with Marty and within the first ten minutes he showed me that my injury was a result of a weak and improper use of the muscles involved in speaking/singing. He came to my rescue to teach me how to heal my strained voice and how to speak with more strength and clarity. We worked together during the following months to relearn the way to use my voice. It was great to be able to talk again, and even better to have the tools to continue to teach. Marty's lessons saved my singing voice as well as my teaching career."
primary school teacher and singer
"What I remember the most of my work with you was that I learned how to identify the problems that I had and how to fix them. I learned the difference between using my voice in the incorrect and then correct manner, and learning what that difference felt like. That technique has really stuck with me, not only in identifying and amending my own vocal problems as they arise but in teaching my clients to recognize efficient versus incorrect body use."
"Your training has been invaluable for my career. Though I left Ithaca twelve years ago, your lessons continue to provide me with the skills and knowledge to continue to use my voice effectively today. As an attorney who is constantly arguing positions in Court, the ability to project a strong, confident voice has been a vital asset to me and, ultimately, to the success of my cases."
"Marty's technique and observation skills are invaluable to new and experienced speakers. Seek to be heard and to preserve your voice!"
