I wrote this entry a while ago and set it to be posted, but somehow, it just didn’t happen. Better late than never, I guess!
Every now and then, Graham English offers some very cool tips and tools over on his blog.
His focus is primarily on helping musicians and songwriters, but some of the tools he offers are great for speakers and performers of all kinds.
Like his most recent post on Mental Rehearsal. Now, I love mental rehearsal! When I am creating a new show or getting ready for a singing gig, I lie on the couch and rehearse the whole show in my mind. Not only does this help me prepare, it also tends to spark new ideas that I hadn’t considered before.
But Graham is giving us a technique I’ve never heard of before: The Swoosh Technique. I like the sound of that, don’t you. SWOOSH!
Check it out. Give it a try. Let me know what you think.
