VOICE SKILLS:
Last week we spent a lot of time working registers and experimenting with the breath, understanding how resonance works, and how the vocal cords respond. We will continue in this direction and talk about 'ripple waving' in the vocal cords and the different muscles that respond in our larynx.
Thursday:
With our voice skills sessions we sing a round and/or group song to practice what we are learning. Also groups practice listening to other groups and noticing what they hear; and listen for differences.
Friday:
