Students will learn the basics of voice and what we communicate through our voice. They will work on a choral speaking piece.
Volume, pitch, tone, projection, resonance, articulation, range
Pitch: How high or low the voice is.
Range: The distance between your lowest and highest notes.
Pace: The speed you speak at.
Projection: Making sure everyone can hear you without yelling.
Resonance: A deep, full, and reverberating sound in the voice.
Volume: How loud or quiet the voice is.
Emphasis: Special importance, value, or prominence given to a word or phrase.
Enunciation: How clearly a person says a word and how clearly each sound is made.
Tone: The way someone is speaking – the underlying meaning.
Pause: A brief silence, used to enhance meaning and/or build tension.
Articulation: The physical act of using your tongue, jaw, teeth, lips, and palate (roof of your mouth), and breath to create the sounds. Forming clear and distinct sounds in speech.
