    12.8.17

    I Heard It Through The Grapevine:
    – Great work at really opening your voice up today.
    – It’s all about offsets! Making sure the note is held fully to the very end of the line
    – Make sure you don’t rush, it’s nice and slow so you have time to really find your rhythm with this

    Track to practice with:

    15.7.17 – Double Lesson

    I Heard It Through The Grapevine:
    – Keep singing it a cappella, push into the ends of the words to eliminate the wobble – staying connected to your diaphragm
    – A bit more twangy, laid back yet choppy!

    Radioactive:
    – Watch out for the ends of “ive” push into the end as above

    Bliss:
    – Practice the phrasing and smoothness, like in Plug In Baby

    Plug In Baby:
    – Open the vowels a bit, and the end of “baby”, so more like “babeeehh”

    Because:
    – Keep the connection in the core
    – “is” is where the jumps are so a bit more power for those

    1.7.17

    Warm Ups:
    – Great low notes 😉
    – Bella Señora Lucky 7: Very good a cappella
    – Try lots of Bella Señora trills getting faster and faster to improve runs

    Because:
    – Sounds beautiful as always, just warm up with another song or 2 before doing this so you can find your power

    I Heard It Through The Grapevine:
    – Really loosen up with this, sing it a cappella for a bit!

    Let’s do a mashup for our first arrangement?!

    24.6.17

    Because:
    – Keep working on building intensity and probably give it about 30% more overall!

    Thinking Out Loud:
    – Great work with the technique, it’s just relaxing into it and making sure it doesn’t sound pinched in the higher range

    I Heard It Through The Grapevine:
    – You’re relaxing into this one – choppy and soulful – finding your inner black! 😉
    – Go through the varied on/off-beat “oh”s in the chorus and also that final verse

    Superstition:
    – This is more easy going and pure pentatonic scale – in the chorus you can really vary it, especially for “superstition ain’t the way!” starting on any note! So play around with it and enjoy feeling free 🙂

    17.6.17

    Because:
    – Nice run through with the live mic
    – Work on building intensity and swelling sounds!

    Thinking Out Loud:
    – Great high range today but more work on how you are projecting the lower notes

    I Heard It Through The Grapevine:
    – This would be great to ease you up a bit with the polite English singing, lol!
    – Be really technical with every little run Marvin Gaye does, and notice the choppy and twangy/American soul sound! Enjoy.

    10.6.17

    Because:
    – Amazing work finishing this today!
    – Also great work singing the live version in the mic. Here it is to practice with below. Be aware of dynamics and getting the tone just right as you move through each section alongside the harmonies.

    Thinking Out Loud:
    – Go through to end of word without the breath at the end
    – In the chorus, find a sweet, warm tone that doesn’t sound pinched

    3.6.17

    Because:
    – Great work adding to this. Work on controlling those semitone intervals and not attacking the notes too strongly. It’s really becoming well balanced though! Great work. We will complete next time so think of a new song you want to try!

    13.5.17

    Warm Ups:
    – Great a cappella warm ups

    Because:
    – Good that we made the key higher so you can manage the low harmony
    – Sounds amazing! Have a listen to what you’ve got so far and then carry on the parts with the rest of the track:

    6.5.17

    Because:
    – Great work with this today, melody is all sorted so now just work on smoothing the phrases and fine tuning the low notes
    – Start working on the soprano harmony, or perhaps the low one to see if the key is okay?

    22.4.17

    Thinking Out Loud:
    – Gentle dip down on the low notes, just on those single syllables “be-/my”
    – Timing difference between “thinking ’bout how” in bridge and “thinking out loud” in chorus
    – Don’t rush the runs
    – Final chorus is where all the changes happen
    – Find your power for the start of each high line, then soften the tone a little towards the end, but not losing the power either

    Because:
    – Work on the melody and think about the tone and dynamics
    – Continue the soprano part if you feel ready!

    Rolling In The Deep:
    – Great take and edits, listen so far below, think about what you want to edit:
    – Start singing along with harmonies!

    14.1.17

    Warm Ups:
    – Carry on working on the offsets
    – Pentatonic scale to get to know your voice more (ah-oo)

    Rolling In The Deep:
    – Great belting!
    – Good work on runs – maintaining the depth aids this
    – Start thinking of harmony ideas much like we did today (look at Overtones version again)
    – Good mic technique – further back than you think if you’re really going for it!

    Paradise Is Half As Nice (B)
    – F# start – worked for both head voice and chest voice!

    7.1.17

    Warm Ups:
    – Take bits of your warm up and work on the offset which eventually should help with vibrato later on
    – Tonally: Make your na/yeahs vertical for a warmer, open-throated ton

    Rolling In The Deep:
    – Work on the depth of your voice throughout (almost manly!) so you don’t go into “screech” mode
    – Take yourself on a diva journey! Today was great – just throw yourself into the song and things like vibrato will just come
    – Work on the runs slowly first, gradually picking up the pace
    – Great belted notes in the chorus!!
