Looking foward to seeing the show. Log in to reply Marilyn February 4, 2009, 11:59 pm These videos are wonderful and informative. I think “drink often and pee pale” is great advice, just in general. 🙂 Log in to reply Susan Miller February 6, 2009, 1:21 pm I train speakers to think of their voices as an instrument. You might wish to warm up your voice in the shower in the morning by: Doing lip flutters, rasperries or tongue trills to get your breath going. Hum a song being sure to keep your jaw relaxed and your face long so that the sound resonates in your face. Recite ‘red leather blue leather’ 3 times quickly or say ‘eleven benevelont elophants’ quickly to warm up your tongue, jaw and lips Log in to reply Meredith February 8, 2009, 11:41 am This was really interesting, especially the part about drinking water! I don’t perform anymore (oh who am I kidding I’m only 20) but it’s fun to see the greats doing the same sorts of exercises. Thanks for posting!
