October 24, 2008, Newsletter Issue #136: Acting Technique: The Vocal Warm-up

Tip of the Week

Part of any serious actor training involves training the voice to articulate and project. Here's a great exercise to get your pipes in tip-top shape for performance time.

Begin by standing up straight, knees unlocked. Breathe long and deeply. Exhale through your lips in a sigh.

Open your mouth very wide, and stick your tongue out. Then pull in pack in and purse your lips very small.

Next, blow air through your loosely closed lips so that they flap like a horse.

Stick your tongue out and move it in all four directions.

Then try a tongue-twister. You can find lots of tongue-twisters online, or ask your friends for their favorites.
