Continuation of the article "Putting a Voice."
In the previous article, we looked at the theory and tried to produce our real voice. There was an interest in the subject.
The second part is a little less than entirely practice, so without much talk – stock up on chips and beer, and hit "Next"!
We’ve learned how to yawn well (if not, read on anyway). Yawning, and pulling in the sound while doing so, by understanding how our voice should go.
And so we continue.
Lean back in your chair, relax your jaw. Think about how you relax it, how each muscle relaxes. Your lower jaw goes down, your tongue goes to the base. And it happens by itself, without straining the muscles. Yawn. And pull the sound out.
Maybe if even yawning is bad, or just not yawning, now we get down to the basic exercises and we’ll get it right.
Stay relaxed, with your lower jaw down, tongue withdrawn. Next there will be 4 exercises for which you will call yourself, this I guarantee.
The main purpose of all 4 exercises is to breathe. You just have to do it.
in different poses. with different mouth positions. Performed for one minute. A break of 2-3 minutes between exercises.
Don’t forget to relax!
1. Press your lips together with your teeth unclenched. Breathe through your nose.
2. Clench your teeth, unclenching your lips. Breathe.
3. Unclench your teeth and lips, mouth slightly ajar by half a centimeter, clamp your nose with your fingers. Breathe.
Let go of your unhappy nose – and breathe.
As you exercise, you will yawn – this is extremely good, yawn more. Yawning is very helpful.
It is advisable to do these exercises more often. For example, on public transportation – 1, 2 and 4.
The 3rd (with your nose clamped) – for example, in the toilet. You’ll figure it out.
Sometimes try pulling the sound while breathing, after you’ve yawned. You’ll feel a sound like the one from the first article, loud and clear, which pours out easily and freely, without muscle tension.
Try calibrating up and down.
We will pay attention to tone in the next article.
Now do at least one exercise, and let’s try to evaluate the result. We’ll stretch out the sound. Pronunciation is also part of the exercise set, but it’s better to do it later, when you will already be able to make a loud sound easily, without much effort. But now let’s try to see what we have. The sound should be vibrating (in unison with the diaphragm).
Listen to the hubravideo, you should be able to do that.
It’s loud enough, the voice isn’t clipped, you can feel it spreading out in all directions, and it vibrates a bit.
Sit up straight. Straighten your back, one hand on your diaphragm.Relax your jaw. Inhale.
Your throat will twitch a little like when yawning, if you start yawning don’t stop.
And pull on the sound. Moan. Keep your head up. Feel the vibration under your hand (which is the diaphragm, not the head propping it up (pun intended, haha)).
Great, we got the voice.
What now ?
The assignment for the next few days is to breathe through your mouth with your throat relaxed in the ways described above. It’s important to use all four, so that you understand your voice better and you can control it more easily. Then we’ll practice the tones, it’s going to be easy, now it’s hard to start and it’s very hard to remember to do it for 10 or 15 minutes a day.
After that, let’s move on to diction, to pronounce the letters clearly.
P.S. If you do it outdoors, make sure you don’t interfere with anyone. I once had an idea, and around midnight I really scared my grandmother from behind with it.
P.S.P. I was asked about literature in the first article, so here’s the answer. In my opinion, a textbook worth reading in the first place that includes both breathing and diction and speech rules –
S. T. Nikolskaya "Speech Technique" Moscow, 1978.
You know where to find it.
This is goodbye for a while, loud voice to you and don’t forget about it.
