“He who knows how to breathe and pronounce well, knows how to sing well”
Pacchiarotti (quoted in Francesco Lamperti’s book The Art of Singing).
I have written quite a few posts about breathing. Today, I decided to write about pronunciation. Pronunciation, as well as breathing exercises, should precede singing lessons.
Oskar Guttmann, in his Gymnastics for the Voice, wrote the following brief but important guide to pronunciation. It is an excellent wee page for beginners.
