Voice production; We will focus on tonal quality (vowel/consonant/doming), ear training, breathing/power, increasing range, phrasing, dynamics, timing, improvisation...working on songs of your choice, developing and encouraging greater confidence to perform or simply enjoy singing.
We will use 'muscle memory' exercises to develop finger strength/placement/familiarity, practise simple, adaptable rhythmic patterns in varying time signatures, following bass-line chord structures, composition/harmony/progressions, note reading, improvisation...using both pieces of your choice or teacher suggestions.
We'll identify strengths and tailor exercises and lessons to your needs, at your pace.
For young children, each lesson rotates between rhythm (beats), instruments (piano, ukelele, recorder) and voice.
