Tongue Twisters For Singers

Tongue Twisters can be a great way to warm up your mouth and tongue for singing and they can help you work on articulation and even releasing vocal tension.

Here are four of my favourites. Scroll down for where they’re all written out for you below. Just add them to your warm up when you have a little extra time.

2: This tongue twister helps with forward tongue placement.
