Dear Shanvi,

Did you like this new song? And do you remember the patterns Tootly made to draw a caterpillar from the notes? Here are some caterpillar friends for you! πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

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.

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 – good, needs some work
Rhythm – good
Overall control (volume, breath etc) – good
Pronunciation/ recollection of lyrics – good

Notes: Shanvi has sung the song broadly well, but made a few mistakes in the tune in some phrases. Since there are multiple (but repetitive) lines in the song, I’d suggest practising/ recording in a lead-follow fashion (with the backing voiceover) a couple of more times.

You’re almost halfway through the course, so keep the rhythm up!
