Home Exercises: Week 73

Hello Cheyne Gang! This week Julie has a breathing exercise and two folk songs which will help you pace your breathing using short then longer singing phrases.

The Breathing Waltz

In this exercise we breathe out to breathe in. We're breathing out on short then longer rhythmical speech sounds, counting in 3s to create a feeling of a waltz (for all you ballroom fans!)

Julie has chosen two folk songs for you to practice singing two short phrases followed by a longer singing phrase

When the Boat Comes In

Dance to yer Daddy, sing to yer Mammy

Dance to yer Daddy to yer Mammy sing

Ye shall have a fishie on a little dishie

Ye sheall have fishie when the boat comes in

And a Youtube link to sing along to:

Loch Lomond

By yon bonnie banks and yon bonnie braes

Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond

Where me and my true love were ever won't to gae

By the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

And a Youtube karaoke singalong to practice with:

And finally the wonderful Dougie Maclean singing Caledonia - watch how he sings short then longer phrases. One of my favourites!
