Dear Sanay,

Welcome to the course and so glad to see your first recording here! Did you have fun making funny faces with FunnyMouth? Nice to see you enjoying a new thing called singing! Keep up the good work and here are some stars FunnyMouth and Tootly have sent for you ✨✨✨✨✨

Dear Parent,
Welcome to the course. We hope your child is enjoying the learning process and is getting comfortable with the Tootly user interface. Please feel free to ask us any questions in this regard. We’ll do what we can to ensure you are able to continue smoothly.

Sanay has a good, strong voice. This first exercise is to help kids free up their voices, become conscious to their ‘singing’ (vs talking, shouting) voice and understand the listen-sing mode of learning. Please see our point-wise feedback below:

Confidence and Independence – good
Understanding of the concept or exercise – good
Pitching – good (see note below)*
Rhythm – not applicable for this exercise
Overall control (volume, breath etc) – good
Pronunciation/ recollection of lyrics – good, needs some work

Sanay – do you remember what Tootly told us in the very first lesson – about music being what sounds nice, and about how to use our voices – not too soft and not too loud either. Keep that in mind every time you sing.

We are glad you are enjoying the lessons and have started singing already; continue the momentum by doing lessons regularly 🙂

Dear Parent –
In the beginning, we don’t expect the child to be singing the exercises completely independently but rather develop the habit of listening and copying to sing. In the first few exercises, to ensure we build pitch accuracy (which comes through listening and trying to imitate the singing), we’d recommend using part of the recording video where the character sings phrase by phrase and the child can listen and sing after it. Feel free to ALSO record on your own (part 3) as you have done. Just remember to use the Tootly reference, as there are many other aspects other than lyrics that the child imbibes by listening to the right reference.

Sanay has an excellent voice, and can use his volume and breath well if he consciously controls it. We’d encourage you to replay the video to him and see if he feels he can use a more ‘singing’ vs ‘shouting’ voice. Rather than correcting them everytime, we try to make the child themselves sensitive to these aspects as part of their learning.

In every lesson that needs a recording to be done, you can scroll down and click on the RECORD button there. Scroll up and continue listening and signing with the video as usual. Once down, click STOP recording and download your file with just 1 click. On the submission page, you can attach the relevant file to continue. This way you don’t need a second device for recording. Hope this helps.

Look forward to meeting Sanay soon. Please book a live meet from your dashboard (instructions will be sent on email too) once the child finishes Day 5.
