Thanks, Dave. I’m hoping readers will find this site visually appealing and informative!

Hi Ann,
I’m a TV talent coach who has a client with a seriously nasal voice. We’ve been working on breathing and bringing down the volume, but it hasn’t helped. She needs more specialized voice coaching. Do you know of anyone who can help? I’m a huge fan of your work and quoted both you and Dave Cupp in my book, “Power Performance.”
Thanks, Terry

Terry–How nice to hear from you! Thanks so much for complimenting my work. I’m glad you’ve found it helpful. I’ll add your name to my email list if it’s not already there so you’ll get a notice about new Voice Updates. Also, “Like” my facebook page for weekly tips at https://www.facebook.com/AnnSUtterbackPhdBroadcastVoiceSpecialist

Now, about the nasality. I always send clients to a licensed speech pathologist to work on nasality if it’s severe. I have never felt qualified to tackle something that difficult. Also, I tell clients that they will improve twice as fast working with a speech pathologist because they have the computer programs, etc., to facilitate the training. The one caveat is that they need to explain that their nasality might be considered “slight” in someone who is not on the air daily. Often I’ve had clients say the speech pathologist dismissed them because their problem was not as severe as what they are trained to handle.

Hope this helps and thanks again for your kind comments. Good luck with your future training!

Hi Ann, you probably don’t remember me, but I was a client of yours through WUSA’s Reporter Trainee program in the early 90’s. I now work at WRAL TV in Raleigh, where I anchor the 5:30, 10 and 11:00 newscasts. I have a colleague who is interested in improving her voice, in order to take a stab at some on air work. Right now, she is off air. What would be your recommendation to her? Thanks, and I hope you’re doing well.

Ann S. Utterback, Ph.D. November 23, 2013 at 5:45 pm

Gerald–Of course I remember you! It is so good to hear from you again. Why don’t you email me so I can reply to your request. My email is OnlineVoiceCoaching@comcast.net. Thanks. Ann

Dr. Utterback!

So glad I learned about you. I’ve just started narrating audiobooks on ACX. I believed one’s voice can be improved, but never knew how until I read about your work. I want to learn more. Thanks for all you do. It’s wonderful!



Ann S. Utterback, Ph.D. June 13, 2015 at 2:57 pm

I’m delighted that my blog posts are helpful for you! Be sure and check out my books and mp3’s as well. I’m trying to get as much good voice information out there for people to use as I can.
Good luck with your new career in voiceovers!

Nancy April 4, 2016 at 3:27 pm

My work consists on being on the phone all day handling callers concerns and offering assistance. I came across your website and I am ready to order your book and mp3 since I feel I need to improve my voice and how I come across over the phone.

Ann S. Utterback, Ph.D. April 4, 2016 at 3:40 pm

Hi Nancy!
Thanks for your interest in my book and mp3’s. It sounds like you do use your voice quite a bit, and it’s important to keep it healthy. Be sure and read the chapter in my book on phonation. That will give you lots of info and ideas on how to keep your voice in good shape. The mp3 on articulation might be helpful if you think you slur your words at times.
Good luck!
Ann S. Utterback
