100 days. 100 hints on singing. Number 30. Here is a remarkably effective technique for improving your English diction shared by Elisabeth Parham, a teacher, mentor, and friend after whom my daughter is named. In music that is wordy, fast-moving, and angular, reverse the English diphthongs, going immediately to the second vowel of the diphthong, rather than lengthening the first. Your text will become remarkably clearer, brighter. Remember, if it is not quite rapid this will not work. Elisabeth was a phenomenal teacher whose work deserves continuing attention.
