Good work this week again!
Michelle – You’re going to add a vocal exercise this week – the flexibility exercise. A resource track will be uploaded to your Dropbox folder tonight! You’re also going to add the second half of Once I loved in the new higher key, and if that feels comfortable, you can use the backing track to sing along with! Aim for 15 – 20 minutes a day of practice.
Nila – excellent work this week! You are going to take your Hiss-saw exercise (and resource track), and do Hng-ah as well. Breathe for 4, sing ‘Hng’ for 4, then open to a nice tall ‘ah’ vowel. You can do this for 5 minutes a day, in whatever increments you want! Keep working on your major scale with hand signs. You are also doing page 5 in your Full Voice workbook, questions 1 and 2. Use pencil, and we’ll correct it together next week! You’re also going to begin learning ‘Castle On A Cloud’, verses 1 and 2. The sheet music and a learning track are in your Dropbox folder. It’s also from a musical!
As for some musicals that you might want to watch: Annie (1980 version), The Sound of Music, Shrek, Mary Poppins, The Lion King, The Wizard of Oz, The Wiz, Matilda, Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella. Go for the live action versions, not the cartoons, to see people acting and singing their hearts out!
Have a wonderful week,
