No. 19 MICROPHONES ARE YOUR FRIEND
Anyone who needs to project the sound of their voice over time – speaking or singing – also needs to know a thing or two about microphones and how to use them. Really…even if it’s not de rigueur in your industry, you may want to consider being a maverick. The choices of microphones and amplification systems are huge, and something is bound to work for you. It’s a technology you can use to command attention, be clear, and save your voice. It’s also very affordable as well as infinitely more attractive than using a bullhorn.
For CCM singers microphones are not optional. It’s worth a little time and attention to find the best mic for your voice and to learn to use it well. (Jeannie Deva, LA voice teacher and performance coach, has a helpful article about this in Voice Council Magazine. )
TAKEAWAY: Microphones are a gift to speakers and singers everywhere. Learn a little and it will help you a lot.
