Tongue twisters,
this is a fun one, probably have lots
of good bloopers in this lesson.
Okay, you might wanna do a couple of lion
face as we approach tongue twisters.
[SOUND] Really gonna engage all of our
articulators in our face, tongue, lips.
These tongue twisters are great
just to kind of get your brain and
your articulators engaged together.
You know you need unique New York.
That's a good one.
You know you need unique New York.
You know you need unique New York.
You know you need unique New York.
You know you need unique New York.
Here's another one.

Now you should approach this just like
you are some of your scales, [SOUND].
You should have good breath.
Peter Piper picked a peck
of pickled peppers.
You shouldn't be grabbing
with your throat.
You should have a nice,
even, relaxed air flow.
You're articulating from your abdominals,
from your nice, strong mouth closed base.

Okay, I did all of that on
one [SOUND] nice big inhale.

That's another fun game.
See if you can emphasize a different word
in the tongue twister
every time you deliver it.
Here's another one.
Red leather yellow leather,
red leather yellow leather,
red leather yellow leather,
red leather yellow leather.
Red leather yellow leather,
red leather yellow leather,
red leather yellow leather,
red leather yellow leather.
Play with your articulation.
Sweep up and down through your pitches.
This will help keep your air flow nice and
consistent.
And also, if you're keeping your body
relaxed in all the right places, it'll
help you to focus your air flow again,
through your nose and through your mask.
So that it doesn't drop, red leather,
yellow leather, red leather,
yellow leather, you don't want anything
to drop back into your throat.
You don't want anything to tense up
any of this part of your apparatus.
Here's another good one.
Eleven benevolent elephants, eleven
benevolent elephants, eleven benevolent
elephants, eleven benevolent elephants,
eleven benevolent elephants.
