Band Director Teaching French R's!
Date: December 22, 2015
Okay, so I've been asking a ton of people, and I can't seem to get a solid answer, so i'm turning to you, internet.
Disclaimer:I'm a Saxophone/Bassoon player, and I have been teaching choir for 8 years, and I'm really loving it. I also have a minor in French, so I like to think i know a thing or two about pronounciation. I was originally told that when SINGING in French, though, that you try to use the uvular R whenever humanly possible-whenever it's not in the way. However, recently I was told that some people say that you ALWAYS flip the R, and NEVER use the uvular one while singing. So which is it? What do you guys think??? (:
