Voice Training Tips


Voice training tips

Further Voice training tips   and exercises from previous threads include:

  1. Mmmmmm! – shut your lips, but pull your lips back into your mouth area over your teeth. Make a humming sound and allow your lips to loosen up so they are just shut.  Change the pitch of your voice until your lips begin to tickle.  Hold this particular note for a while and then find other notes / frequencies where this happens.
  2. Hah! – picture you are digging a hole (you need to do the actions too!): as you dig into the surface, exhale with a “HUH!” sound.  Raise the dirt, and as you chuck it over your shoulder, make a “HAH!” noise. Repeat until it gets too silly.  You can also exercise this by pretending to do Kung-Fu techniques – blows and kicks and the like.
  3. Oooooh! – Slide in a continuous journey upward and down your natural range – Okay, you need to wiggle your arms for this one: higher notes – arms up in the atmosphere, lower notes, bend your knee joints and hang your hands like a monkey.
  4. Me – me – me… etc., upward and down your natural range, for ages, for fun…, then all of the following: mah, mi, may, my, moo, mu. You can mix them up too.
  5. Yah! or Yar! – for this particular one, simply allow your jaw to drop loosely to a free hanging – don’t force it open, perform this for a while – twenty times or so.
