Paula – Let’s aim to finish Let It Go this week and move on to a new selection. You’re focusing on I to the end in terms of rhythms and pitches. Select a new piece of music this week and bring it to your lesson next week for us to begin!
Olivia- We spent much of the lesson working on new concepts from your rock band repertoire. A backing track for Higher Ground and your learning track for the Blues scale can be found in the Google drive. You’re working on feeling comfortable with the blues scale, and also listening to several versions of Higher Ground to expand your ‘musical vocabulary’ and feel more comfortable improvising, paraphrasing and experimenting with the melody. 25 minutes a day practice.
Arjean – We began True Colours today. Be very careful of vocal fry, which happens when words or sounds begin with a vowel. For now, we’re going to mitigate it by adding [h] at the beginning of those words that are causing you issues until we can train you out of the vocal fry. Work on the entire song this week, and we’ll hear it next week! You’re also working on [pa da ti], speaking it slowly, then gradually getting faster. Try this for at least 3 minutes a day. 25 minutes a day practice.
