Say it proper
My Grandma, affectionately known as “Wo”, taught music and elocution. These days I often ponder over the number of Voice Over Talent Australia wide whose careers benefited from her skills.
She’d finished giving piano lessons by the time I was 10. In fact, my big brother was her last pupil. However granny still put me through the rigours of elocution.
The dictionary defines elocution as “the skill of clear and expressive speech, especially of distinct pronunciation and articulation”.
If you are part of the pool of Voice Over Talent Australia wide or plying your trade as an actor then, you will appreciate the value of such a skill.
While I might not have had the success my big brother achieved in eisteddfod competitions, I am forever grateful to “Wo” for inadvertently preparing me for work as an occasional voice-over dude.
I nostalgically recall one exercise designed to improve my diction that required my then 10-year-old brain to say
“Betsy Botter bought some butter, but she found the butter bitter. So she bought some better butter to make her bitter butter better. But, the bitter butter made her better butter bitter.”
I’m sure you’ll have as much fun with this little ditty as I do!
