Arthur’s Biography


Arthur Samuel Joseph, M.A.

Founder and chairman of the Vocal Awareness Institute, Arthur Samuel Joseph is widely-recognized as one of the world’s foremost communication strategists and authorities on the human voice. A renowned teacher/mentor, Mr. Joseph’s mission is to Change the World through Voice. His proprietary voice and leadership training program, Vocal Awareness,® is designed to teach Communication Mastery through a disciplined regimen of highly- specific techniques, vocal warm-ups, and storytelling skills- to cultivate an embodied and enhanced leadership presence, as well as personal presence. What emerges is an integrative and integral communication style.


Mr. Joseph has taught globally for over five decades. His varied client list includes national and international leaders in politics, business, entertainment and broadcasting, the hospitality industries as well as among world-class athletes, motivational speakers, life coaches, noted actors, singers and other luminaries of the stage and screen. Formerly on the faculty at the University of Southern California School of Theatre, he has been a visiting artist at both Yale and George Washington Universities, and visiting professor in the New York University Graduate Extension program, among many others nationally and internationally. Recently Arthur also created the first vocal training program for broadcasters when he joined the faculty at the Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. 


His lifelong dedication to his mission, “To Change the World Through Voice” becomes increasingly vital as our culture becomes more dependent upon technology and social media to do the work of communication. As Mr. Joseph states, “We are on the cusp of losing the art of public discourse.” He has become a lone voice in raising the alarm that we aren’t simply losing the ability to communicate, we are losing our innate ability to connect with each other on even the most basic levels—physically, psychologically, and spiritually.
In Vocal Awareness “The Journey is never outward toward accomplishment or fulfillment of our goals. Rather, always and only inward toward discovery of the Deeper Self.” Arthur’s breakthrough Work is designed to help you embody all that you are capable of Being—in full Conscious Awareness–to maximize your possibility. When we do so, goals are fulfilled. It is the inevitable outcome of Communication Mastery.


Arthur is the author of 5 books, multiple CDs and DVDs, and on-line courses. You can view his most recent book, Vocal Leadership: 7- Minutes-a-Day to Communication Mastery, with foreword by Roger Goodell, Commissioner of the National Football League, here!
