Step 1: Relax your jaw and throat Relax your jaw and throat before trying to project. If you're tight when your voice is projected, it will not sound to its full potential. Step 2: Breathe from your stomach Breathe from your stomach and not your shoulders and chest. Tip Yawning is great practice for how to relax and open your throat and jaw. Yawn as a pre-performance exercise. Step 3: Open everything up Open everything as wide as possible. Relax your body and push your voice out. Step 4: Use your whole body Use your whole body, from the ground up. Push your voice up through your diaphragm, your chest, and your throat, and then out of your mouth. Tip Aim your voice at a specific spot in the back of the theater and try to make your voice hit the spot crisply and clearly. Step 5: Have confidence Know your performance piece well so you can be confident on stage. The more confident you are, the more your voice will naturally project. Step 6: Have fun on stage Have fun on stage. The more excited, confident, and loose you are; the better and more natural your voice will sound. Break a leg! Did You Know? Did you know?
