I like to eat! Articulation exercise from England
What is healthier than a musical apple or banana? Sharon Durant, workshop leader and singer from the UK, developed a nice and simple way to loosen up the lpis. You don't need much English, because the only lyrics are: 'I like to eat apples and bananas.' Repeat the sentence with different vowels, so it sounds differently every time. A guaranteed success!
On the film, you see Sharon at work during a workshop for teachers that was organised by Musical Futures. (from minute 10.00)
‘Musical Futures’ is a movement to reshape music education driven by teachers for teachers. At its heart is a set of pedagogies that bring non-formal teaching and informal learning approaches into more formal contexts, in an attempt to provide engaging, sustainable and relevant music making activities for all young people. The core aim is to promote, support and develop innovative and high-quality teaching and learning of music through Musical Futures approaches in schools across the UK.
'Find Your Voice' is an approach to singing that involves students deconstructing music that they are familiar with, and rebuilding it entirely using their voices (replicating melody, bass, percussion etc). Read more about this project and the materials used here.
