The Lip Roll with Jayden

Jayden recently started voice with me as well.  In this video we demonstrate how to perform the Lip Roll to warm up and relax your vocal chords.  We also have a bit of fun as this exercise can be boring for students at time and they often overlook it.

Playing the A minor Harmonic Scale

The A minor scale is one of the first scales that students doing official exams will learn.  Here we have a look at the fingering as well as the notes that are played.  
Remember, the A minor Harmonic scale, has a gypsy like melody or sounds sad.  It has a G-sharp for an accidental.

Photograph: Syncopation and Alternating Hands with Carla

Carla is learning to play Photograph by Ed Sheeran. I have specially arranged a version of the song for her. It contains section with syncopation as well tied notes where hands need to alternate at times. During our lesson, we take a look at how to play these elements as well as how to count the beats out correctly.

Justin and Cucumber Jam: Counting the Right Hand

In this video tutorial, I help Justin count out the rhythm of Cucumber Jam correctly.  Recently,  we also made a video on counting the Left Hand.  Both videos should be watched together to get the idea of how the hands will be played together.
