    All Of Me:
    – Great work on this today, despite a hoarse voice!
    – Just take your time, each line is later than you think. Hold on longer for words like “heeeeeead spinning, noooooo kidding” and also the “all”s in the chorus! This will help you get to the next line not too quickly. You did well with the pace today
    – Just relax when it comes to performing; everyone is in the same boat as you and you DESERVE to be on that stage!

    Use the backing track I emailed to you!

    Practice All Of Me and So High (backing tracks emails)

    http://www.karaoke-version.com/custombackingtrack/john-legend/so-high.html?pitch=-1&levels=1%2C0.2%2C100.3%2C100.4%2C100.5%2C100.6%2C100.7%2C100.8%2C100.9%2C100.10%2C100.11%2C100.12%2C100.13%2C100.14%2C0&pannings=1%2C0.2%2C0.3%2C0.4%2C0.5%2C0.6%2C0.7%2C0.8%2C0.9%2C0.10%2C0.11%2C0.12%2C0.13%2C0.14%2C0&precount=0

    We can purchase the above track if you pick this one!

    All Of Me:
    – Make sure you don’t speed up
    – No straining on the high notes – when you lightly flip into falsetto it’s much better for your voice

    2.10.17

    Warm Ups:
    – Focus on that transitional part of the voice “sen” when it gets high, add some twang (bring it into your face more)
    – Na/yeah scale up high, then try holding the high note for a bit longer (i.e. “na na na na naaaaaaaa na na na na”), then come back down again

    My Girl:
    – Perfect for your range

    So High:
    – Stretches you more in the higher range
    – Higher for “Walking on cloud 9”

    Dance With Father:
    – Next door note fine tuning – really listen to how the melody moves in each syllable

    Red:
    – Chorus: Work on hitting the high notes over and over 🙂

    Creep:
    – Go over and over the high part emailed to you in the easier key. See how you get on!

    Check out Otis Redding and Al Green

    This would also be a good one for you:

    Pick a song for the showcase! Anything you want 🙂

    5.9.17

    Warm Ups:
    Na/yeah scales
    – To help you with high notes!

    Your Song:
    – Don’t rush, feel the pace of the music (harder with strings and no drums!)

    Ordinary People:
    – As above, trickier as it’s just piano
    – Listen to the chord changes and take your time in each line

    Ain’t No Sunshine:
    – Don’t rush the 3rd line
    – “I know” 2 lots of 5 then a 6 – listen to the attached (comes straight in after the first click on the blank version!)

    Stand By Me:
    – Love this best!
    – Twang/nasal for the high darlin’ – much better! Try this karaoke which is in a more comfortable, slightly lower key:

    – Also it will force you to slow down and listen to the music!

    Use Somebody:
    – Love the rockier sound to your voice – you CAN do this so trust yourself (Stand By Me is higher)

    Hold Back The River:
    – Very tricky off-beat rhythm so we would need to work on this separately

    Next time: Creep – for the Halloween showcase – start practising, just do the high bit lower for now if you can!
