Vowels are so much more than just letters or parts of a word. They are how we change the size and shape of our vocal tract. In this three part tutorial, Camille will cover singing with vowels and vowel modification. In part one, we’ll cover narrow vowels: both what they’re good for, and how to modify them when they cause issues. In part two, we’ll do the same for wide vowels. And in part three, we’ll use some real song examples to learn vowel modification within your song work. 

Stay tuned for the warmup!
