How to speak with a microphone

Instruction
Hold the microphone correctly: all fingers should be in contact with it, but do not try to clasp it with your palm. Do not protrude the little finger, lower and relax the elbow. The distance between the lips anda microphonemust be equal to three fingers. Place the palm edge to the lips and focus on the ring finger. Do not bring the microphone closer so that the unpleasant sounds from the letters “b” and “p” do not work. Do not hold the device too far, otherwise the voice will be ugly. Keep a distance throughout the performance, keeping it with bends and head movements.
Find out in advance where the speakers are. Try not to direct the microphone in their direction, so as not to get a sharp heart-rending sound. If you are carried away and did not notice how this situation turned out, direct the microphone in the other direction, and the sound will stop.
If you have little experience witha microphonetry to move less. You can get lost in a long cord and stumble. If you begin to move, with a non-working hand (in which there is no microphone) hold and direct the cord to the side.
Rehearse a performance at home, using a banana as a microphone, to which you can attach a cord for realism. Learn how to properly hold the "microphone" - practice in front of a mirror to look beautiful. Walk around the room, gracefully adjusting the cord and without losing visual contact with the "audience".
Come after the rehearsal to the organizers and ask to turn on the device.
