Breath Support, Sight Reading and Pitch Recognition are part of a singers training. Have a look at this video I ran across yesterday to see why I was very impressed with the proficiency of this man’s students.
The teacher is using what is called the Solfege Technique. He teaches timing while using breath support techniques PP & K, then Sirens to get the class singing through their breaks. Then watch and see how quickly his class picks Mi right out of the air! Wow!!! I’m impressed. Then some great sight reading to finish it all off. Wish I had some of this when I was in High School.
“This isn’t easy stuff we’re doing!”
. . . says the teacher when they are finished. . . . Ya think?
