Protect your vocal folds

We are told by various people that our precious website will sink into a virtual “slough of despond” unless we continually blog – feed it.

So here we go: One of the early voice exercises that I loved and am now doing is the old straw blowing technique.

  1. 1. Place straw in mouth
  2. 2. Round the lips around the straw
  3. 3. Hum Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody or God Save the Queen or Advance Australia Fair (according to age and political preference).   (Kazoo acting) 5 minutes.
  4. 4. Remove straw and speak your monologue and find how much better you sound. Next blog: Straw and water!!
