Hello, I’m Jimmy Cannon. Your Voice Coach.
I’ve been fortunate to have had a career as a singer and saxophonist for most of my life, performing on TV with Sir Tom Jones, on a private plane for Richard Branson and recording for both Roger Taylor and Carlsberg. I now work with individuals, business professionals, corporates, singers and anyone else who wants to improve and control their voice for public speaking, corporate presentations and singing.
We All Have One Voice!
Whether for speaking or singing, our voice is the same, and the techniques used to teach vocals can be transferred to enhance people’s speaking skills. I offer voice training to individuals and corporates who are looking to improve their vocal skills, public speaking, presentations, singing and performance techniques.
Want to speak with greater influence and credibility?

How to be more expressive when speaking in public - ‘Intonation and projection’
A difference in speech pattern will change the intention behind your words.
Conversational speech is different to giving a presentation, speaking on the phone or recording a pitch to video
How to be more expressive when speaking in public - Pitch
Do you want people to listen to you? Want to sound more interesting? Do you want to become and even greater speaker and command your audience?
Carrying on with my series of videos on ‘How to be more expressive’ when speaking in public, I wanted to talk about pitch in speech.
Hate the sound of your voice?
We all hate listening to the sound of our own voice (or perhaps some of us), but don’t forget that we have a very different perception of what we sound like in comparison to what others hear, so when listening back to our own voice, it can sound alien and non recognisable as our true voice.
It’s worth remembering this and not to be too self critical.
