Finding the puppet's voice

Question: I received your 30 lesson course, in excellent condition, a few weeks ago. I have been reading through the first several lessons then going back and doing each lesson with much serious effort. So far, so good. I am having a minor problem with developing a ventriloquial voice for a duck puppet. Any suggestions you may offer would be greatly appreciated.

Answer: It's still early in your learning, study, and practice so what you are experiencing with your ventriloquist voice search is very common. I would suggest you concentrate your efforts on a resonant voice higher in tone than your own voice. Especially for use with a duck. Try singing up the scale "do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do" and find a tone several steps higher from the initial "do" which you can use as a "springboard" into your ventriloquist speech. Move directly from the selected musical tonal level into spoken words. I think you will find it becomes easy and easier with practice repetition. (You can use the word "Shay" in the same manner as explained in the lessons.)
