The Muscles of Speech

Lecture no. 17 from the course: Mastering Stage Presence: How to Present to Any Audience

The Muscles of Speech

Taught by Professor Melanie M. Long | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Here, exercise and strengthen the muscles we use in shaping words, an important practice for clear expression in both professional and everyday life. After warming up the breath and voice, work out your vocal articulators using combinations of consonants and vowel sounds, followed by practice phrases and tongue twisters for enunciation and clarity.
