Delivering words clearly and accurately is an important task for singers. The effort of pronouncing a word, however, must not affect the quality of the voice. This session will discuss the connection between vocal diction and vocal production aiming for enhancing diction skills for singing and efficient use of vocal articulators for consistent vocal quality. Everyone will actively participate in exercises of corrective techniques related with the movement of the tongue, lips, palate, and jaw. All levels of singers are welcome.
