Our voices are amazing, unique and versatile. Using our voices we can directly access music from a very early age without the expense or physical challenges of an instrument. In fact it’s the most enjoyable and effective way to teach and learn music.
To help our students experience the difference between their speaking and singing voices we use a mixture of rhymes (spoken) and songs (sung).
One of my favourite games for this is We Are Dancing, since it uses both the singing voice AND the speaking voice.
