So we are working on Talicia’s first album and during her session today, we tested out the two backtracks for two cover songs that she is going to do. I am so so so excited about this.
During Shayna and Zeenal’s first lesson for the year, they surprised me with a song they practiced together. Thanks for the surprise girls! It made my day and you sound great!
It is such a privilege to have gifted students with me. All my students are great but Talicia is truly something different, something unique. Though she is only 12 years old, her voice is already so amazingly strong.
This year, Talicia and I will be working on her first album together. In the video link above, she sings Make You Feel My Love by Adele.
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.
Shayna also started learning Somewhere over the Rainbow. As she is still very young and struggles with reading the words and some of the pitch, we decided to sing together so that she can learn easier in between lessons.
Zeenal wants to sing Firework by Katy Perry but is having trouble with remembering the pitches and projecting a louder voice. I help her to constantly be aware of the pitches by playing along on the keyboard while she has to sing in a louder and more projecting voice.
Over the last couple of months this amazing yet very shy student, Leseli has built a lot of confidence. Here we perform Somewhere over the Rainbow for voice and Uke.
I am very proud of you Leseli. Keep on practicing. Your voice has improved so much!
Emma, a new student at WRMS shows of her skill and how her confidence has improved with her new found passion – singing.
