List of Goals for the week:
Warm Up: Circle songs
Scale: Chromatic and Minor
Technique: Interval Recognition
Repertoire: For All We Know Harmony, Tonight You Belong to Me
Additional Studies: Minor and Major thirds and how they make up minor and diminished scales.
Paragraph summary of what was covered in class
This week we worked on the lower harmony of ‘For All We Know’ and started singing the first half of that with the melody. Used ear training / interval recognition to assist with entrances, and staying on harmony part while the melody is being sung. This song is a test in our ability to try and hear multiple parts at once and maintain our own! We also continued our work with singing chord progressions from music.
Assignment for next week
Review melody (whole song) and harmony (first half of song) of For All We Know. Begin to get familiar with the main melody (alto) line of Tonight You Belong to Me and sing it along with the recordings of both the alto and mezzo-soprano.
How to Practice this at home
Warm up (deep breathing, released on a slow hiss), slide on Nn’s, Mmh’s and slowly open up to Ahh’s. Moving through different intervals. Notice and try to release any tension you might be holding in your jaw, neck, shoulders, lips, or tongue.
