Hello Cheyne Gang!
This week we have two songs for you to learn and sing along with at home and we also re-visit a popular breathing exercise from week 1.
Kathy has an American folk song for you to learn - Shawneetown. Fiona has contributed a great in-depth tutorial for 'Blackbird' by The Beatles and we revisit one of Julie's breathing exercises. We also have a song from YouTube that Fiona has chosen for you all to enjoy!
To start us off here is Kathy.
