Today, we will have a prop-related episode – we will talk about straw phonation. I’ll share three techniques to start practicing straw phonation in two different ways, doing straw work in water and doing straw work out of water. 

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

– What is straw phonation, and how it can help us in our voicing

– The simple techniques to practice straw phonation in and out of water

– What are the differences and different effects in the type of straw we choose to do our phonation

Straw phonation can improve the connection to lower abdominal support. It can encourage vocal fold alignment or closure, and it can promote an efficient, unregulated, subglottic air pressure, which will eventually help reduce vocal fatigue.
