American Accent Intonation with Stepping

American Accent Intonation with Stepping

Jill: Hi everybody, it’s Jill Diamond. Today we’re going to work on stepping. It’s a technique in our speech where you use the scales, but you don’t go through every note.
 
You skip over some notes. For example: orientation, implementation, presentation [stepping over last syllable]. When I say these types of words, I have to jump up, I have to skip over the notes and come back down. That’s stepping, and we do it over time when we hit keywords in our speech. We step up, we skip over notes. It’s something that I want you to practice. I want you to get used to exaggerating that step up in your voice, because it’s really going to help you to be more effective in communicating the words that you want people to hear.
 
Go ahead and try that, have some fun with that, play with that, loosen your voice up. I want to thank you for watching today, don’t forget to like, to share, subscribe to the by Jill Diamond Channel and I’ll see you next time.
