    23.2.18

    Warm Ups:
    – Watch out for the “h” (would rather your voice cracks) and leftover air at the end of the note
    – Vowel scales, switch to “Ma”

    La Frontera:

    Breakdown:

    Hoy vuelvoala frontera
    Otra vese dia, travesarsh
    Es el viento que me manda
    Que mempu-ujala frontera (j = h, second “u” goes up)
    Y que borra el camino-Que
    Detrás desa-pare-ece
    Que detrás desa-pare-ece

    Me arrastro bajoel cielo
    Y las nu-ubes del invierno
    Es el viento que las manda
    Y no hay nadie que las pare (starts quick: ee no-i nad-yeh KE las pare)
    A veces combatede, spiadado (extra d)
    A veces baileya (bylia) veces…nada
    A veces baileya (bylia) veces…nada

    Hoy cruzo la frontera
    Bajo el cielo
    Bajo el cielo
    Es el viento que me manda
    Bajo el cielo de acero
    Soy el punto negro que anda
    A las orillas de la suerte (swear)

    – Well done with the last verse – you got this much quicker without help! Just go over those trickier lines in the earlier verses more and really listen carefully to each syllable she sings in the video
    – I would focus on perfecting this before moving on to any harder Spanish songs. You’ll be able to do more once the Spanish becomes easier and quicker to roll off the tongue!
    – Great expression but make sure you use a softer tone now and then; it can sound over-pushed and then wobbles sometimes

    La Frontera:
    – Great accent!

    Breakdown:

    Hoy vuelvoala frontera
    Otra veshe dea, travesarsh
    Es el viento que me manda
    Que mempu-ujala frontera (j = h, second “u” goes up)
    Y que borra el camino-Que
    Detrás desa-pare-ece
    Que detrás desa-pare-ece

    Me arrastro bajoel cielo
    Y las nu-ubes del invierno

    1.2.18

    Great first lesson!

    Warm Ups (attached):
    – Fricatives
    – Octave slides (“mm/singggg”)
    – Vowel scales (“ma” for break)
    – Bella Senora Arpeggios
    – Na/yeah for increasing chest voice

    Silver Blue:
    – Great song to practice the break on. Change to head voice if it’s too much of a strain in chest (you never want to strain)
    – If you want it in a lower key, this will take the pressure off

    Veinte Anos:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2vBh6_h7WE (maybe slo mo to 0.75 – settings) to learn the words slowly and carefully – listen to every syllable and be aware where some words merge!
    – Lyrics plus translation: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/viente-anos-twenty-years.html

    Found an instrumental, but it’s higher, be warned! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQt8wCtkZNA

    Please find an invoice attached for the next 2 lessons. Bank details and terms and conditions are included on the invoice. Once paid, I can get you signed up on the website for further warm ups!

    Looking forward to our double lesson on Thursday 15th Feb at 4.45pm!
