Tongue Taming Voice Lesson

Welcome to Madeleine Harvey’s “Total Voice Method”, Lesson 4: Tame That Terrible Tongue. In this downloable voice lesson, you will learn how to release tension from your tongue. This will instantly free your voice, giving you more clarity. This is super important because it removes all of the work from singing. It also eliminates any pressure in your throat and mouth.

What to Expect in this Voice Lesson

Weird Noises

We are going to making lots of strange, very lazy sounds. Your voice may wobble and break. Please don’t judge yourself. Allow breaks to happen. We are focusing on freeing your voice from muscle control.

Use Your Hands

You will be asked to use your hands a lot in this lesson. It’s important that you play along. This will help you become aware of when muscle tension occurs in your body.


We will be working a lot with movement in this lesson. At times, you will be asked to gently roll your head from side to side. This is going to allow you an easy way to disengage any muscle tension as it happens. Please use your discretion when participating in these exercises.

Have Fun!

This is not meant to be work. It is meant to be play. So give yourself permission to let go of your voice and let go of all expectations. If you feel the need to laugh and giggle at yourself, go ahead. This is supposed to be fun.

Recommended Use

This downloadable voice lesson should be listened to at a time and in a place where and when you can dedicate your complete attention. This program is not meant to be used when you are operating heavy machinery, motor vehicles or anything that could be labeled as a device, please use your own discretion while participating in this lesson.

Do not attempt to sing if you are sick or if your throat or vocal cords feel strained. If you are experiencing chronic inflammation or suspect you may have any kind of vocal disorder please consult with your doctor prior to participating in this lesson.
