MUSIC LESSON.
1) Vocal Coordination – By now you‘re well aware that all of the essential
elements of singing are interdependent.

• Breath support is dependent on good posture and muscle tone.
• Developing excellent resonating ability is significantly dependent upon good breathing technique.
• Phonation and articulation skills are effective only when resonance and tone production are good.

Be Patient with Yourself: The process of combining these singing skills into a single, coordinated vocal technique will not be completed quickly. It may take many months, or even years, before you begin to feel secure in your total singing technique. You will undoubtedly develop further if you continue to work on your vocal technique. However, in the meantime, you can thoroughly enjoy singing, using your voice while it continues to develop. Keeping the body in gentle motion – not huge movements, but slight, smooth adjustments continuously to PREVENT tensions/rigidities – is an ideal way to avoid tension in all parts of the body. Keep it simple! Don’t try to complicate singing – be natural!

Also remember, when we take our minds off of needing to sound good and hit the notes – i.e. the result – we can experience true magic. And not only has it been proven to be exceptionally effective – it is also fun.

• Always start with your vocal warm up exercises: use vowels to vocalise i;e ae, ee, aa, oh, ou.

• Now let’s move on to the song: We’ll be doing a song from ‘The Beatles’. The name of the song is ‘Let it be’.
The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. They were regarded as the most influential band of all time. The band members were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.


LET IT BE

• When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

• And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer,

Let it be
Let it be, let it be. Let it be
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be,
There will be an answer let it be. 2x
