Dear Tanishaa,

Did you like this new song? And do you remember the patterns Tootly made to draw a caterpillar from the notes? I see you’ve sung very well! Keep up the good work and here are some caterpillar friends for you! 🐛🐛🐛🐛🐛

Dear Parent,

This is a vocal exercise that every beginner student of classical music learns. Once the first stage of expanding the voice range, getting stability while singing, and being able to sing with ease in one direction (up or down) is achieved, students move on to exercises created by recurring patterns like these. Think of them like training exercises for their voices.
In this particular song, we are checking a few things: if students can manoeuvre the zig zag melody well, reach the correct highest point of the melody, and land back correctly at the starting point after completing the song.

Tanishaa has sung this correctly and well. 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 – good
Overall control (volume, breath etc) – excellent
Pronunciation/ recollection of lyrics – excellent

Note: We notice that Tanishaa’s expression is stressed whenever she is singing. We would encourage her to enjoy the music – she can take a few more turns at practice first so that she is not worried about the lyrics or notes while recording. Hope this helps.

Look forward to hearing more from her soon.
