Our weekly Lansdowne Choir practices are continuing every Friday under the expert tuition of Miss Kirstie. We start with a vocal chord warmup. The choir members are also asked to clap in rhythm to the guitar sounds being made by Miss Kirstie. Some gentle stretching takes place.
Choir are currently rehearsing a couple of songs. The first is a traditional African song from the Democratic Republic of Congo. This involves singing in the round.
A second song is the more contemporary pop song Happier. The Choir members follow the words and the Makaton signs. We are focusing on the changes in pitch.
