By it's very nature singing is a language of vowel. Most consonant with the
exception of the voiced consonants, M, N, R G, and Z cannot be sustained.
Learning to identify and define vowels helps the vocal line and flow of a song.
It also helps maintain a healthy vocal production by eliminating excess tension
For purpose of demonstration, I will use the song "If I Loved You" from
the musical Carousel..
My first example uses the phrase "If I loved you, time and again I would try to
say". but without any consonants.
Click on the play button twice to start the demo. Click on
it again to stop it. be sure to stop one demo be fore going to the next or they
will both play together. you will also probably want to use the volume button to
turn the sound down a bit.
If the demos don't play it is because your browser wants permission to
play active X controls. look at the top of the browser for a line asking
you if you wish to play active X controls.
