Bamdom Letter: Stammer


If your reading this one i know your probly like what is stammer? But i know there is a few of you that do know what it is due to you having it or knowing someone who does. But for those of you who dont know Here goes: Stammering, or better known as stuttering, is a problem with the normal flow and timing of speech. Attempts to say something may be interrupted by repetition of a syllable, prolongation of the sound or a complete block on speech.

There is often embarrassment about having a stammer. People who stammer may find they are quite fluent if they sing, whisper or speak as part of a group.

Recent research has found that some people who stammer may have difficulty coordinating the muscles for speech and need more time to speak. Now why is my blog about this you may ask? If ya guessed because i have this you are correct and I feel it should have more light shown onto this Impedement.

The symptoms of stammering is a person may have problems initiating speech or flowing from one syllable to the next but all stammers are different. The easiest way to hide it(an i am guilty of this myself) is by simply not speaking at all. A reason for not speaking at all at times is because people can be mean/make jokes because you speak differently, so to avoid that some just dont speak at all. In some cases a person with stammers may develop into a tic or what is called the shakes.

For my lady readers you are somewhat safe from this impedement because It's four times more common in boys than in girls. In families where a person has a stutter, there's an increased risk that other members will have the same problem.

There is no cure for a stammer, but there are certain things that can be done to make a difference. One simple approach that helps me is to speak more slowly. Other ways can be formal speech therapy, development of social skills, self awareness, assertiveness training and communication skills.

I think from a dance perspective this pic is flawless. The extension and hand placement for both of the subjects are spot on.

BVM Music Choice: Anthony Flammia ( @AnthonyFlammia) - The Looper

As a blogger I love finding new talent (well knew talent to me) and I can say I have listening to Anthony Flammia.. Surfing social media and I happen to stumbld upon this video on my dash



Those raw vocals made me do a quick search and that is how I found his "The Looper" project. What is the looper you ask??

The Looper was created in its entirety tonight, May 1, live at Premiere Studios in New York. With the help of his RC-505 Roland Loopstation, Anthony created every song onstage through a process of looping himself beatboxing and stacking blended harmonies with sound effects, together making up the instrumentals over which he sung, audience participation very much included. All songs are original and were written, produced, arranged and performed by Flammia himself.
Check it out here  and enjoy the dope harmonies
