In your primary grades, the voice can have many different timbres. It can be sung as an aria, yelled from the roofed top, whispered quietly, and spoken normally.
In "The VoiceSSSS!", we concentrate on the four methods of using our voice, a key in identifying and practicing the methods:
S - Spoken
S - Sung
S - Soft (Whisper)
S - Shout
Students see a display 1 through 8 to SPEAK on a steady beat (3 background tracks included, from 80 to 100+bpm). As they read these numbers on a steady beat, there will be numbers highlighted in yellow that will be a different characteristic. Some may be sung, whispered, or shouted (have fun with the shouts) :)
Each slide is completely different and will challenge your kids as you count them off so they can experiment vocally
For the sing, there is no definitive pitch, so I ask them to make up a middle or high pitch on the number given.
You can take turns boys and girls, you can play it as a class, or however you wish
Some are quite tricky -- kids may have to switch up to 4 different vocal styles by the end!
If you have any questions, feel free to comment! Enjoy!
