Laying the foundations for developing music literacy skills begins with active music making. Quality repertoire is indispensable. Therefore the role of the teacher becomes clear; it is to deconstruct a music repertoire so the children can reconstruct themselves. The goal is always to promote and develop musicianship through beautiful singing and music making. Improvisation, the art of composing extemporaneously, and composition, the art of formulating and writing music, are integral components of a music curriculum.
Improvisation can take many forms. Improvisation is connected to movement, text, music literacy, as well as improvising using instruments.

Improvisation may be experienced using a structured and unstructured approach to teaching. Learning how to play music instruments, non-pitched, pitched Orff instruments and recorders is an important skill to teach children. We believe that there are three steps to teaching students to play instruments musically. The construction of a music curriculum takes time and patience. More and more, school administrations are requiring music teachers to become just as accountable for their classroom learning as general classroom teachers.

Many successful teachers are developing organic music curricula that reflect current research from the fields of perception and cognition. Best practices and models indicate that music learning needs to begin with artfully singing age appropriate repertoire that can be used for developing singing, performing on instruments, developing creative movement, teaching music literacy, improvisation skills and developing informed audience members. CCM styles are so much more prevalent throughout the world; singers really have to be able to master those styles if they are to get work.
Schools are only just beginning to catch up with curriculum design and there are still not enough teachers who have appropriate experience and skills to convey the pedagogy needed to sing in multiple styles well. Every school has different ideas and gathers a different faculty with diverse abilities. This will continue, probably, for at least another generation before it all gets sorted out.
TVF: In your opinion, since you have been teaching for decades, what is the secret to vocal longevity?
JL: Treating the body with respect. You cannot force the throat or the body without paying a price. You will not be able to sustain singing if you do not truly love your own sound.
TVF: What do you think the next steps are in growing the field of vocology? What I would like to see is what I have already said.

More research on professional singers at high levels with long careers, especially in the field, live. Recognition of crazy teaching ideas as being crazy so they will go away.!! I would like the scientists to be willing to be taught by the singing teachers as much as the singing teachers and SLPs are willing to learn from voice scientists. Voice science that does not understand singing in high-level singers is nearly useless. That needs to change.

This should allow you the opportunity to sing that high note with a nice ring, and stop any strain you are feeling in the throat. Think about what the sound feels like in your cheeks, nose, and mouth. Other important factors include getting good cord closure by thinning the edges as you ascend in pitch.
This can definitely add a nice cry to your voice!
For me, having my first lesson with a SLS instructor over 10 years ago, was true validation. Two main things happened for me:. I finally had a coach who was working my entire range at one time. Two and a half octave scales, going up or down by semi-tones, had me singing through five passagios in one exercise!
I heard and felt improvement in my voice within the first day.

I had been taught belting, and that just felt wrong. Healthy belting is done by mixing your registers. I want to thank Jenny for getting me back to posting on my blog. I forgot how much I love answering your questions. Jenny was asking for clarification about the thickness of vocal folds in the great pop singers…. It is a chest register coordination with thick folds. The vocal folds thin out as the voice ascends in pitch.
To do this without being breathy, the larynx will tilt as the voice goes higher. You mention the great pop belters, so I assume you are referring to the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Christina Aguilera. You say it is obvious that they are singing with thick fold. Please note, it may sound like they are always singing with thick folds, but, they are mixing with varying degrees of vocal fold thickness. Their larynx is tilted and their cords have stretched thinned or stiffened as they ascend in pitch.
Exception: Christina Aguilera sometimes sings in full chest voice with thick folds, and is able to sing in a beautiful mix as well. The reason these singers sound like they are only singing with thick folds is because they have good vocal cord closure and breath control and support…two EXTREMELY important components to singing in a good mix.
You mention the wide vowel and forward placement. This is why they simply sound like they are talking on pitch….. If any one of these singers were to sing their 1 hit song in your living room without a microphone, you would say…. Is that all there is? There are all kinds of singers with all kinds of voices. What kind are you? Knowing your habits is a huge step to improving your singing. We learn how to do this in the exercises, but more often than not, when we sing a song, we go straight back to our original habits.

Check out Ian Castle from www. Are they really out of breath after singing in studio and would it be hard to do same song in concert if done say 5th song in concert? How do they calm breathing down after concert and where can I find information on that subject. I hope you can help. We do the exercises, day after day, hour after hour….. It takes time and commitment to get to the next level of new discovery.
