Everything about The Sound Center


The Sound Center was founded by Michelle Eppley. We offer training in speech, voice, accent, and presentation skills.

The Sound Center unlocks the vocal power of executives, professionals, and performers by improving projection, speech articulation, and fluency. To increase conversational ease, we also redesign foreign and regional accents and increase competence and flexibility with business English.

The Sound Center helps you enhance your voice because you have a lot to say. When you align your communication sound and style with who you are, you speak better, you communicate authentically, and your confidence increases.

“I truly believe every person has a lot to say. It is a privilege to help people become better speakers, voice users, or communicators. Whether you lack the confidence to share your ideas, you have trouble being understood, or you often lose your voice, we can help. There is nothing about your communication sound or style that is too big or too small for us to address.”
