Pronounce Words When Singing

To elevate your singing abilities beyond what only sounds good in your own ears to a voice and presence worthy of performing for other people, you have to learn how to pronounce words in a musical context. Pronunciation is the key not only to being understood, but conveying emotion in a song. A few simple pointers can help you begin to develop this skill.

Write down the following tongue twisters: "Red lolly, yellow lolly, red lolly, yellow lolly"; "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers"; "Shy Shelly says she shall sew sheets"; and "Which witch wished which wicked wish?"

Practice saying these tongue twisters slowly; do not sing them. When you can say them well, record yourself. It is best if you can record the phrase and then either leave room to record you singing them later, or record each phrase to a different tape or file to keep them separate.

Sing the tongue twisters, moving up and down a basic scale. For instance, instead of the notes "do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti," substitute the words "shy-shelley-says-she-shall-sew-sheets." Repeat this step several times for each tongue twister until you feel you have mastered being able to pronounce the words when you sing.

Record yourself singing the tongue twisters on the simple scale and listen to the difference in clarity between speaking the twister and singing it. Note the words you have problems with and go back to Step 3; repeat that step until your singing of the twister matches your clarity in speaking it.

Experiment with the way in which you pronounce the vowels in each word, and in the speed. style and emotion of the manner in which you sing the tongue twister. Changing a long "a" to an "ah" sound or changing from "Shel-lee" to "Shel-ay" will affect the emotion you convey when you are singing. Record your different versions and listen to them.
