About this book:
“Denise Woods is an essential, practical guide for anyone who breathes and speaks, as well as a riveting memoirist. Uniquely, Denise not only coaches others to discover and reveal their authentic voices, she shares her own authentic voice and experience. I think my own teaching will improve from reading this necessary and inspiring book.” (Tim Monich, dialect coach for blockbuster films such as The Departed, Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood, A Star Is Born, The Wolf of Wall Street, and many more)
“Through her own personal story and those of the many actors, broadcast journalists, and others she has coached, Denise leads us through an engaging and encouraging journey of vocal empowerment. In each chapter, she shares the wisdom she has acquired over years of teaching and offers exercises we can all employ to locate our breath and unlock our individual connection to our own voice and speech.” (Evan Yionoulis, Richard Rodgers Dean and Director of the Drama Division, The Juilliard School)
