Applying methods to songs

I have read some posts about using the "Ah" vowel to replace lyrics in song repertoire. What other techniques should be used for applying the KTVA method to songs? Thanks

    You Remove all consonants when you practice on the AH. Then after getting the melody perfected on the ah, including vowel modifications, you then use all of the actual Vowels of the song, still not adding consonants. Finally, after getting that worked out, you add back in only as much consonants as you really need to make the song sound intelligible.

    This process makes a huge difference in how you can perform songs. You do it line-by-line, and work out all of the inconsistencies in the songs. The reason you do this, is it forces you to use the training that you work on in KTVA in order to see the relationship of the vowels to being able to actually pull the song off.
