5 note scale and staccato half appegio
15 Sept Videoed. Feeling a bit stressed but did a good job
The Two of Us
10/11 Very strong and funky.
15 Sept – Sung sweetly, piano smooth. Previous time looked at Playing piano with more dynamics. Bigger breaths before singing the loud passages. Piano much smoother. Ran end of session today and Aroha stressed from school so didn’t look at dynamics.
27 Oct Piano stronger.
When She Loved Me
Likes the high notes and certain Motifs.
Little Things. In an attempt to get to learning how to belt worked on anchoring. This involved stamping and running on the spot which worked better. The voice got fuller which was the desired result. Need to apply this fullness to all singing.
