Firmer voice

Wow, I actually have been busy these last couple of weeks. Who would've thunk it?

Yes, it's supposed to be spelt that way.

Had a super session with one autistic kid on Thursday, but a terrible one today with another autisitic kid. Today the kid's mother kindly suggested that I firm up my voice because it's too nice. :]

Any tips to how I can do that? It's not really yelling, it's more of having a harder voice so the kid will be scared of me. Well, I'll be seeing my case manager on Monday, so I'll ask her. Whaha..

On another note, I tried racing Shan squared at swimming. Who do you think would win? Shan squared, who teaches and competes in swimming competitions, or me, who hasn't swam (swum? bad English, man!) seriously in many years?

Why, me of course. ;P

Just kidding.

Children's church party tomorrow. From 10am to 5pm. Over 150 kids. How am I going to survive? Start training my firmer voice now!

Hi Alison! I'm glad you are enjoying the summer. I read in Hooi's blog that you went swimming with her secretly. Sounds like fun!

To make your voice more 'firm', here's something you can practise: Put your hands on your cheeks (ie right hand on right cheek and left hand on left cheek). Basically, squeeze your mouth so that your lips are sorta bulged outwards. Then, try to talk out loud. You will realise that your voice is suddenly very thick and rich. After a few practices, you can repeat the above exercise without using your hands but keep the shape of your mouth.

If you think I'm kidding, no I'm not. This is a technique used in singing exercises to project the singer's voice and make the singing rich and thick.
