4 pages. Twelve fun ways to warm up the voice!

All actors must start by warming up their bodies and their voices, but are you bored with the same old vocal warm-ups? You are bound to find something new and refreshing in this four-page tutorial containing complete instructions for 12 different ways to warm up the voice!

Example:

“Eat Each Green Pea” An Annunciation Game

Actors must be very aware of annunciating clearly so that the audience can easily understand the dialogue. In a standing circle, students practice some of the sentences below. These sentences have been specially designed to work all the vowel and consonant sounds in the English language and to warm up the muscles needed for clear speech. Have kids repeat each of these sentences aloud slowly and clearly being careful to pronounce all the vowel and consonant sounds. These aren’t tongue twisters so don’t rush!

Eat each green pea. Aim straight at the game. Ed said get ready.
It is in Italy. I tried my kite. Oaks grow slowly.
Father was calm as he threw the bomb on the dock.
An awed audience applauded Claude.
Go slow Joe, you’re stepping on my toe.
