About this class

Event Title:
Six Degrees Society NYC Presents: Speaking with your Whole Voice with Elissa Weinzimmer

What's Happening:
As women, we often get judged or criticized for our voices. People think we're too high pitched, or are distracted by our habits like vocal fry or uptalk.

In this session, we'll discuss these common female vocal habits. You may not even know you have them, but you'll learn to identify when they're happening, why they're happening, and how you can change them. Important to note though, is that we won't be changing these habits in order to please other people... rather, we'll be transforming them from an empowered, centered place. The goal is for you to speak with confidence and authenticity, exactly as you intend.

Curated Matches:
Before we sit down for our programming, each guest will get 2 curated 15 minute connections handpicked just for them based on bios submitted pre-event here: . Or you can make sure to update your profile in your app with your most recent bio or email with a copy.
