Från sång till tal…

This again confirms Barbara views that for fluent speakers voice is the base, while for PWS words are the base for speech. When you start with singing, you naturally focus on voice. Then you just carry this way of speaking into your speech. I had a friend, an old lady. She was teaching public speaking for her entire life. When she was young, she had a guy in her class who stuttered. So she befriended him, because she was so concerned about him and she suggested they go around singing all the time. She said she spend many hours with him just singing and speaking in a sing song manner and that he stopped stuttering. I was always skeptical of her story. I knew singing and speaking are two different things. But what if she actually helped him to switch to normal way of speaking by vibrating first and articulating second. Now with Barbara’s teaching it all makes so much sense to me. It is not about singing, it is about teaching your brain to start with voice first.
