Dear Parents of our singing students 

 

Everyone is doing such an amazing job at the ADV song “ADV Inspires Me” so far!  And it’s well on its way to be ready for our day at the recording studio on Sunday 10th April

Just some notes for your home practise:

  • All the music is available on Trello for your home practise

  • Have fun with it!  Miss Taylah wants the track to sound like you’re all having so much fun so please practise smiling and having a bright and forward sound.

  • The “oohs” etc. at the start are just a guide, feel free to sing along or make up your own riffs and we can workshop them. 

  • When recording the guide vocal Miss Taylah kept a candid laugh of herself in there as that’s where she wants the signing students to laugh or say something cheeky. 

  • Feel free to learn both the melody and the echoes in the chorus. 

  • If anyone of the younger ones are struggling with the rhythm or tempo please just focus on the chorus as the verse will be split up into parts.

  • The more prepared we are the more fun we’ll get to have on the day at the recording studio so keep playing it in the car, at home or wherever you practise! 

  • There is also an instrumental track on Trello so that you can practise without Miss Taylah’s guide vocal once you are feeling confident. 

 

A reminder that our end of Term in house informal singing performance is also on Saturday 9th April 3pm - 4pm at the ADV studio’s and is free for all to attend and see your singers progress

Dear Parents of our singing students 

 

We hope your singer is enjoying their lessons.  All parents should now be connected to Trello which has your students class notes, singing music tracks and lyrics..   The teachers keep these constantly updated

Your singer should also bring their communication notebook to every class and the teacher writes in this with reminders for practise and feedback on their work.

 

There are a few upcoming exciting events that parents will need to put into their diaries.

Our first singing concert for the year is an informal afternoon performance at the ADV studios.   Families and friends of our singing students are invited to come along to this free event and hear your singer perform a song that they have worked on this term in class.    Performing is an important aspect of singing training and this in house singing concert allows our students to perform in a friendly non threatening environment.
