Midwinter Tuition / Voice and Broadcasting - Nerves and all!0:06:352527074410011.97 MB
So this week I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to speak on radio and television. I was a guest on Monday Matters on a Community radio station in Sittingbourne, SFM, then I was filmed for a slot on an ITN Tonight show which will be aired at the end of this month. For both pieces I was equally nervous. It doesn’t help that I have two more weeks until my periodontal surgery appointment, so I have a lot of pain in my mouth, plus I had the usual cycle of housework, childcare and work issues on my mind. So I thought this week I would talk about taking care of your voice, using your voice and hearing your voice.

Midwinter Tuition / To Autumn0:10:072522024410018.33 MB
SEASON of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees, And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, And still more, later flowers for the bees, Until they think warm days will never cease, For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells. Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store? Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
