Exercises for diction and voice

Due to the correct articulation of sounds and the ability to open your mouth, a clear pronunciation of words is widely provided. Diction, voice and speech are important components of any successful performance. If you open your mouth poorly, speech becomes slurred, quiet, sounds pass through your teeth.
