Welcome to omegabone.com. There are 3 systems that function together to make up the voice. In this video I’ll be discussing articulation. Thank you for joining me. So now that we’ve identified where the pure vowel sounds lie in the mouth we need to connect them to consonants. What are consonants? Consonants are the sounds you make when you close your mouth at various points. Depending on how you create the sound, whether the vocal folds vibrate or not determines the classification. Voiced, or voiceless. When the vocal folds vibrate the consonant is voiced like M, “M-Mary”. 🎶M-Mary🎶 okay. Voiceless consonants don’t have a pitch like C, the vocal folds don’t vibrate, cat, “C-C-C-C-C-Cat” 🎶C-Cat🎶 To make pitch you have to use the vowel, okay. I’m not going to go through each and every letter because every letter has various sounds and you know. But 3 letters of particular concern are S and Z, and the letter R. Now, when S or Z is at the end of a word, try not to overemphasize the sound. You don’t want to sound like a snake. It should be like a beat or a quick articulation. Take the word caress, you don’t want to say 🎶Caress-sss🎶 you want to say 🎶Caress🎶, okay just the very end. The American R should not be sung in most genres. Country music, southern gospel, they sing it, but outside of that you sound country. Take the word Together, you’re going to omit the final R. You’re going to sing together. Yes, I know Together is country. Let’s stay together sounds country. But when you sing it, 🎶Let’s-let’s stay together🎶 I didn’t sing the R, but you heard the R, you knew the word Together. But if I were to sing 🎶Let’s-let’s stay together🎶 Also when R proceeds another consonant like in the word Heart, again you’re going to omit the R. 🎶You make me smile with my heart🎶 Instead of heart you sing hot like h o t instead of h a r t. 🎶You make me smile with my heart🎶 The idea is to omit the final R or if it proceeds another consonant. Now, these are not hard and fast rules, this is just something to consider when you’re singing. You can do whatever you want obviously, but these are some of the things I subscribe to.
