Welcome to my first post! My passion has always been studying the voice and singing. I’ve studied with a few good teachers….all with different approaches to the voice. In this blog you will learn what has worked for me and my students.
Part of the fascination I have with the voice is that you can’t see it! Unlike any other instrument……like the piano, guitar or trumpet, etc., ……the voice is a instrument that everyone has and everyone can use. So why do so many of us fail to use our singing instrument? My guess is because we think we don’t sound good, and therefore we don’t use it.
I have taught music to kids of all ages. It is important for children to start to make singing sounds as soon as they start to talk. This is easy to achieve by playing games with mimicing sounds like airplanes, birds, trains, and frogs. This is where it all starts. Exploring the voice!
In Music Pups that is exactly what we do! Not only do we sing and make musical sounds, but we play rhythm instruments, and we use creative movement to stress the beat or rhythm. It’s loads of fun for the entire family and a great way for the family to learn how to structure the learning process at home………..That’s all for now, Susie!
