Incantation [2]

Short description

Voice and prosody exercise on a few syllables


LanguageAuditory perception

Group size



5 minutes



Goal of this exercise is improving

  • posture,

  • concentration

  • of breathing.

Children perceive the volume of their own voice and the voices of others in harmony. The exercise is suitable for relaxed voice training.


Children stand with knees slightly bent but straight, spread out in the room and fix a point on the opposite wall. This point is now 'invoked'.

Teacher: We invoke the wall by "sending" the voice there with the sounds "Mmmooooo" and "Mmmaaaaa". The emitted sound should come from deep in the stomach and should sound relaxed and open. Widen your throat for this. You should draw the sound out for a very long time. As long as your breath allows. It is important that the voice is "clear", never "pressed"!

Make a chorus of deep sounds that should sound like gongs, sometimes loud and strong, sometimes quieter.
