Dear Meera,

Lovely to hear your first recording in the new course. Hope you liked meeting a new friend – BobbleHead! Do you or any of your friends wear specs like BoobleHead?
I see you’ve sung very well! Keep up the good work and here are some stars that Tootly and BobbleHead have sent for you! 🤓🌟🌟🌟🌟🤓

Dear Parent,

Welcome to Course 2 – and we’re really happy you are continuing with Tootly.

Now that the kids are comfortable with the vocal element of music, this exercise highlights another important element – rhythm. While steady beat is intrinsic in all of us (its actually easier to sing in a steady beat than not) – we often take it for granted and don’t pay much heed to it. This exercise aims to help children ‘hear’ and internalise the rhythm so that kids become comfortable in singing without needing a clapping or tapping action along with it.

We received 2 files – the one sent on email has some issue and we can’t hear her singing consistently throughout the file – this could happen because of any network issue when using the inbuilt record feature. We also ideally need to hear the beats in this exercise since its about matching the singing to the rhythm. However, from what we heard, we could see that she is singing in a consistent rhythm throughout the particular round; and that is the desired effect of this assignment. Please also see our point-wise feedback below (based on needs work/ good/ excellent):

Confidence and Independence – excellent
Understanding of the concept or exercise – excellent
Singing/ Pitching – excellent
Rhythm – excellent
Overall control (volume, breath etc) – excellent
Pronunciation/ recollection of lyrics – excellent

Notes: You can consider repeating (you needn’t send us a recording) at home so that you get used to singing at different speeds – for that: just type the word ‘metronome’ in the google search bar and press search. You will see a simple tool where you can change the speed (a bigger number is a faster speed) and click to play the beats. Now listen to the beat first and then single along just like you did with BobbleHead.

Look forward to hearing more from Meera. The first live meet milestone for Course is on completion of Day 5. Please check your email notifications and set up the same at your earliest convenience. Please ignore if done already.
