Hey everyone! Apologies this is late getting to you – holidays madness got the best of me this weekend.


What we worked on: “Guy That I’d Kinda Be Into” and finding some strength for belting.

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 – 20 mins a day.

What to practice: Find your breathing your breath and shaping your vowels.

How to practice most effectively: Remember to drop your jaw so you can create a bit more space for sound to occur. Pay attention to your breathing around bar 37! Practice your oo vowels through “who knew”.


What we worked on: “Talking to the Moon”

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 – 20 mins a day

What to practice: The new melody in verse 2, your “ah” pronunciation and all your “a” vowels throughout the song, in words like “Crazy”, “Talk” and “Mad”

How to practice most effectively: Stand in front of a mirror and watch yourself as you sing – notice what shapes you’re making as you sing these words. Thing about making a more round “ah” sound like we do together in classes – drop your jaw!


What we worked on: “How Far I’ll Go”

Recommended minutes to practice: 20 mins a day.

What to practice: The up and over technique we practiced, like a volcano. Starting soft and getting louder throughout the song.

How to practice most effectively: Practice singing in front of a mirror. Remember to put the hands on the top of your head and sing towards them – let your sound float up to your head and over! Just have fun with it.

How parents can support: She’s mentioned the last few weeks that she hasn’t been practicing. Please please encourage her to do so! Let’s chat a bit at her next lesson.


What we worked on: Theory and “Perfect” Here’s the sheet music and a track to practice with.

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 – 20 mins a day.

What to practice: Always start by feeling your breath – breathe into your stomach and out as you sing. And rounding your vowels out.

How to practice most effectively: We talked about dropping your jaw and a little about creating space. Have some fun, experiment, watch yourself in the mirror. Whatever you can and want to do to pay attention to the shapes your mouth is making.
