Introduced by Dr. Weiss, was designed as a voice coaching technique for singers and actors, This relatively new fascinating technique may become a powerful weapon against stuttering as well since it features not one good voice but a thousand of good voices...the patient is learning how to control his vocal output using minimal movements of his speech muscles, making it possible to change the voice output in thousand different ways, so you could have a different speech pattern every day...!
Recommended for: Professional voice users, actors, singers, choir singers and opera singers, Professors, lawyers, teachers, secretaries, telemarketing people, salesmen, cheerleaders, rabbis, cantors, preachers, bartenders, waiters, and anyone with a hoarse, harsh voice that is using voice to make a living.
Some limitations do apply: Since this is a highly sophisticated technique, not easy to grasp and demands between 30-45 minutes a day exercising - the patient should be at least 15 years old, should have undergo a successful previous full-length voice therapy technique or undergo a full-length voice coaching/singing/diction classâ€¦In some rare cases, a full length Yoga class would be sufficient (if a full scale of breathing exercises have been implemented).
As an introduction let me explain the idea using a non-vocal muscle: Gravity exercise: Sit on the edge of the chair from the upright position curve your back to the right 10cm then go back to the start upright position curve your back to the right 5cm then go back to the start upright position curve your back to the right 2cm then go back to the start upright position curve your back to the right 1cm then go back to the start upright position curve your back to the right 0.5cm then go back to the start upright position curve your back to the right 0.1cm then go back to the start upright position (the last one you almost moved only in your mind is a specialized minimal movement ! Now, do the whole process to your left side !.....In MMSM, you will learn to do this sort of highly sophisticated voice changing designated movements with the main 5 speech muscles: Belly, chest, larynx, jaw, tongue works like magic for professional voice users!
Best of all, you don't have to be a voice patient, you can learn this technique as a part of advanced singing or acting curriculum. Also, you don't have to undergo a follow-up period to get used to this when you finish the technique you can actually use it immediately on a daily basis
