No, not real lyrics! But, what we are going to do here, using the tune Bruce MacGhie as a starting point, is figure out exactly how we are going to sing this tune in order to get a perfect road map of expression points AND clean embellishments. Check it out if you need a fresh look at how to approach challenging tunes!
In this class, we cover Men of Argyll, a great intro 2/4 march. There is plenty of technique here, but we discuss ways to handle it and think about it so you can approach the tune with the most musical possible result.
In this session we talk about technique and it's very building blocks - syllables. Each technical piece has a syllable pattern that needs to match each other. Finally we talk about fusion of the short note into technical phrases. At the same time stressing both placement and clarity of the movement.
