Hello Cheyne Gang! This week Julie has recorded a breathing exercise and voice warm up as well as
two songs which may be familiar to some of you!
Use the breathing exercise to become aware of your breathing lower in
the body and feel the fill, then use one of the sounds 'z' to
enjoy the resonance of singing "Zingamama" as a voice warm up.
Ooh la la ley!
The Autumn Equinox happened this week so here's a reminder those
amazing autumn sunsets will turn to daylight again!
Ooh la la ley
Another evening fades away
I know the golden sun won't disappear for long
Because tomorrow brings another day
I Stand Tall
Written by Gitika Partington, The Cheyne Gang once sang this in
concert. Sing the last notes of phrases short then gradually
longer and articulate final consonants strongly to help breathe in
longer lyric lines.
I stand tall, watching everything that life gives to me
I stand tall, my feet are rooted to the earth like a strong oak tree.
I stand tall, the wind blows, I stand tall
I stand tall, my life grows, I stand tall.
And because there was a gorgeous moon this week, let's hear Neil
Young's Harvest Moon...
And because it is September and I know you all like to get
moving and armchair dancing, have a good old boogie with this
song from the 70s!!
