      Thanks Terry. I have a tongue twister I did in speech class in college…”Esau Wood.” I enjoyed learning it and shared it with my grandchildren.I’s on the web too.

      Hey Terry,

      Had a good laugh at this 🙂 Can see why it would help so well.

      Btw, nice setup you have here, it’s looking really good!

      This is where my experience with Declam and Speech Team, and also my Theatre major all come in handy. I know dozens and dozens of tongue twisters and still use them regularly!

      Thanks! I use Dr. Suess’ Fox in Socks. Diverse and difficult!

      Hi Terry. Got any software for chopping out delinquent F-words? My drama coach of long-ago had a safer warmup, for vowels: ma na la, may nay lay, mee, nee, lee, moo noo loo …very fast. It’s my standard level-check.
      Oh, and there’s a handy one for looping a ‘crowd murmur’ effect “Soda water syphons, soda water syphons”. Daft game isn’t it, but ever fun!

      Hi I am a radio announcer, been doing it since 1976, although I took many years off to do other things I wanted to do. But I am getting back into it and have a part time job starting soon at a local country station. I need more work though and was wondering if there are any voiceover work I could do from home. Actually, my wife was in radio too and she would like to do that too on the side from home.

      I have just recently become interested in voice-overs. I had found a website that was giving me the opportunity to record and send it “somewhere” for an evaluation. Now I cannot find it. I practiced the script(s), then lost the website. Can you help me with any of those sites? I would love to see what kind of an evaluation I might get. I have no training in voice-overs; however, I am a singer/songwriter. Can you help?

      I enjoyed your video on tongue twisters!

      Great video :o) I think I will try and stay away from the last one, I might slip up and say something else.

      This is such good info Terry. I sing with a barbershop group where I live and it has always been highly recommended that all members “warm up” before trying to sing. This is included physical and well as vocal warm ups. I recently just bought a book of tongue twisters and rehearse through several daily. The mouth is like the rest of the body, it needs to be stretched and warmed up before it works efficiently. It’s no different than a runner who stretches for a run. Thanks for all the good input you share.

      I like tongue twisters. They are comparable to a vocalist singing scales.
