Steps

  1. 1
    For example, words that end in "ch", "k", "t", "d", and "b" should be enunciated with the focus on the endings
    .
    For words such as "peach", "teach", "taught", or "bought", we need to show that the word has an end consonant and that we are moving onto the next word.

  2. 2
    To demonstrate, let's sing the word "peach" in the C scale
    .
    We will sing do, re, mi, fa, sol, fa, mi, re, and do for this exercise. Remember to always take a good breath and provide a good foundation for singing with your posture and diaphragm. We breathe in through the nose, the air is coming down, expanding the lungs and dropping the diaphragm muscles. Do not push out the stomach. The diaphragm should expand to the sides, not forward.

  3. 3
    In this exercise, we have enunciated the end of the word, which is "ch"
    .
    The accent is on "ch" by using strong articulation and accurate pronunciation. We can do the same with other syllables and consonants.
