WHY HEH AND TEH?
The syllables chosen for the exercise have been very carefully thought out,
and must be duplicated very precisely to obtain the maximum benefit from
this exercise. The vowel sound in "HEH" should rhyme with the beginning syllable "Hea" of the
name "Heather" in english. This promotes the optimum standard position for the
tongue while playing by creating the most powerful flow of air in the oral cavity.
You will notice when saying this syllable the tongue is slightly raised in the
mouth and lightly touching the upper molars.
The syllable "TEH" should rhyme with beginner of the word "tether" in
english. This maintains the optimum tongue position when adding the tongue for
articulation. One should practice saying these two syllables before playing
them on an instrument. It has been my experience that most people change
the sound of the vowel when adding the "T".
