He is a voice coach:
a professional figure that has ancient origins. Already in ancient Greece there was a phonaskos which taught the speakers the right diction and correct use of the voice. Today the figure that takes the place of the Greek one is the voice coach (or trainer) who in the United States, England and many other European countries is widespread and sought after.
Almost everyone knows what diction is and what a diction teacher does, but few would know how to find one, if not after some strenuous research.
It provides valuable assistance in the post-rehabilitation field in the continuation of speech therapy treatment, with a light treatment based on a phono-expressive activity.
The university schools that train speech therapists could use the vocal educator to make trainees learn the "artistic side" of spoken vocality.
Acting schools and conservatories could offer other spaces, as well as the university training areas for new teachers of all levels and degrees, providing modules dedicated to vocational vocational education.
The teachers would avoid many of their vocal problems if only they had a more adequate training and could learn the use of a more phonogenic and expressive professional voice.
Many training schools could take advantage of these new professional figures to increase the preparation of their agents and graduates.
The list of areas of exercise could continue: call centers, managerial training, Italian courses for foreigners, journalism schools, Academic Masters, University Faculties of Law, Communication, Psychology, Psychiatry, etc.
Finally, even the family doctor could refer to this figure, for all those mild functional disorders of the pneumo-phono-articular sphere. Sending the patient to the speech therapist can be exaggerated in case of slight dysfunctions that are not properly pathological.
The voice educator deals with:
teach the correct pronunciation of standard Italian according to modern phonetics;
teach the expressive prosody of the spoken and recited voice;
teach the rules for correct vocal hygiene;
teach the correct physiological posture;
teach proper breathing;
teaching public speaking for the vocal part;
collaborate with the singing teacher for the setting of the spoken voice;
collaborate with the speech therapist and speech therapist in the final phase of vocal rehabilitation;
act as a filter for sending to other professionals, such as speech therapist and speech therapist in the case of vocal pathologies and singing teacher for setting the voice.
