Consonant awareness, tongue twisters & singing
Gillyanne & Jeremy are back demonstrating the exercises in the This Is A Voice book.
This week they're kicking and elongating consonants.
Gillyanne takes Jeremy through Exercise 24, Consonant Awareness, in the Speaking Effectively section.
Breaking down the plosives!
Jeremy speaks and sings tongue twisters with two different ways of using the consonants.
You'll hear why one way is better than the other for singing in a non-classical style, and what changes Jeremy has to make to sing in a more legato classical style.
Discover which famous actor elongated his consonants in an iconic role in a British film series. How elongating consonants can add an extra spice to your diction.
And why Jeremy thinks of diction and intelligibility as very different experiences for the audience.
17 minutes of vocal expertise that'll change the way you do your words.
