Vocals Only: Singing with Diphthongs

Diphthongs. It may be an unusual word, but without them, we wouldn’t be able to communicate. So what are Diphthongs and how do we singers ensure we’re using them correctly? Dr Dan has the answers to these questions, plus a couple of practical diphthong singing exercises in this short video.
