Work with  expert Caroline Radcliffe on :

Voice production: Posture-preparing to sing. Breath control, Finding your voice: using different voices. Expanding range: sliding and stepping exercises. Enunciation: clear vowels and consonants, making the face work. Inner smile-angel voices. Singing through to the end of a phrase. Starting and finishing together-collective responsibility.

Musicianship: Implementing basic music elements using body and voice.
Music elements: Rhythm: define beat/ tap a steady beat/  define rhythm/ rhythm vs beat/ ta-ti ti-rest. Pitch: general rise and fall/ soh-mi-la. Phrasing: define phrase/recognise long/short phrases
Structure: recognise phrases with same tune/recognise simple structures, e.g. ABAB

Texture: 2-part hearing- rounds and ostinatos.

You will learn a minimum of 4 pieces you can try in class.
