Four Effective Tongue Twisters For Singers


Tongue Twisters can be a great way to warm up your mouth and tongue for singing and they can help you work on articulation and even releasing vocal tension.

Here are four of my favourites. Scroll down for where they’re all written out for you below. Just add them to your warm up when you have a little extra time.

Improve your voice, with as little as 10 minutes practice a day


  • Maintain your voice and keeping your vocal muscles ‘fit’
  • Developing consistent practice habits
  • Getting the most out of a short practice session
  • Learning how to warm up safely, effectively & reducing vocal tension

Here are the tongue twisters written out:

1: This assists with moving from the front of the lips and back again while slightly raising the soft palate.

A proper cup of coffee from a proper copper coffee pot.

2: This tongue twister helps with forward tongue placement.

I am not a pheasant plucker,
I’m a pheasant plucker’s son
but I’ll be plucking pheasants
When the pheasant plucker’s gone

3: The hardest to say out of all the tongue twisters, this one makes you tap the back of your tongue to the roof of your mouth and also use the front of your tongue for the ‘S’ sound.

Six sick hicks nick six slick bricks with picks and sticks

4: My favourite of all the tongue twisters, this one really helps tire your tongue and mouth out if you do it fast for a decent length of time.
