Things I’ve said

A collection of things I’ve said to students in voice lessons recently:

  • Breathe!
  • More of the height . . . less of the bright!
  • On that vowel, less space and more of the cheeks.
  • You’re making sound.  What if you made meaning instead?
  • Use the syncopation to create a sense of anticipation, rather than holding back.  Rush forward . . . .
  • Breathe!
  • Gotta use the holy trinity there.  The three work together, remember?  [this about the tongue, lips, and jaw]
