What Drives the Miller Voice Method Team

As the Miller Voice Method continues to grow, we share the work with people in a variety of occupations where the clarity of expression is vital; from actors to business leaders, newscasters, athletes, politicians, lawyers, doctors, religious leaders and beyond. Those who find their way to the Miller Voice Method are people who seek a training system founded in a robust physical experience grounded in compassion, transparency, frankness and curiosity.
We desire a world where parents, spouses, and intercultural participants have vast access to MVM training; to increase capacities of patience, compassion, effective listening, conflict management and transition. The work integrates intention with breath in order to build a flexible, responsive and resilient voice through movement, thought, emotional life and point of view—in short, convert competent communication into communication that compels and captivates an audience or listener.
What We Do
- MVM develops actors and communicators who work with the Active Breath as a tool to receive and reveal maximum information in their sound while maintaining a dynamic presence.
- MVM trains teachers who are curious, compassionate, frank and transparent and who are interested in modeling these qualities and fostering them in their students.
- MVM shares the work globally via our Presence Training workout videos, our web-based video analysis services, and through trainers who travel, live or work outside the U.S.
- MVM continuously evolves the method – by the aid of science, experience and real-time feedback from collaborators. We value rigor over preciousness by discarding what becomes ineffective or irrelevant to the needs of the 21st Century communicator; the studio is the laboratory.
