Pop-up Singing School by Bird on the Birch Next Session is at the Gallery Cafe Chappel 17 Old Ford Road E2 9PL, Sunday 18 May 2014, 10am
This coming Sunday, we’ll look into the clearness and brightness of the sound we create when singing.
Sometimes the effectiveness of the song will depend exactly on that, a clear and bright sound, and contrast between these and smudged sounds.
The technique we will work on this time in particular is articulation, recapping on the projection and resonation of sound, and we’ll start looking into compression, which will be our main technique for the next lesson.
The song we’ll work around as an exercise is a jazz standard Fly Me To the Moon written in 1954 by Bart Howard, and the version sang by Frank Sinatra.
Thought for a day: Why do we sigh?
I look forward to seeing you at the Gallery Cafe Chapel this Sunday for yet another inspirational session.
