Listen to the second to last repetition of the whole sentence, because that was Best, using pitch jumps instead of VOLUME. In the other places you were using more Volume, just getting LOUDER--except on the word "drive", which you use pitch correctly.

You are making the words Operative mostly by increasing the VOLUME, instead of just jumping up in PITCH. Practice this exercise deliberately NOT going up in volume--do it all by raising the pitch instead.
