tongue twisters

In order to be proficient at tongue twisters you must make a conscious effort to pronounce each word properly. This forces you to make mental notes of your problem areas, and correct them with practice.
Using tongue twisters to warm up for singing can help, by preparing your mind to control the starts and stops of good enunciation. It forces you to pay attention to what is coming out of your mouth, and to correct it when it is wrong.
This is a tried and true technique, and many vocal students have benefited from selling sea shells by the shores.

A big black bug bit a big black bear, made the big black bear bleed blood
A big black bug bit a big black dog on his big black nose!
A big box of biscuits, a batch of mixed biscuits.


A cup of proper coffee in a copper coffee cup.
A fat-free fruit float.
A foolish fellow finds fault freely.
A growing gleam glowing green.
A quick-witted cricket critic.
A tidy tiger tied a tie tighter to tidy her tiny tail.
An Ape hates grape cakes.
Any noise annoys an oyster…
