Student Lesson 2 Chloe's first attempt at My Favourite Things (Grade 2 RIAM exam)
Chloe Reilly Byrne (9) has such a special unique voice. Her natural talent is something to behold.
When she first came for lessons she had a tendency to "Pull Chest" what this means is that she was shouting to reach high notes. Now (while there is still some weight in her voice) she is starting to experience through her vocalises/exercises how effortless reaching for high notes can be. It's a privilege to be able to help her get there! Watch out for this kid.
This video clip was Chloe throwing herself in at the deep end to run through this exam piece for the first time. Notice how she manipulates the vowel shape on the word "feel" ("and then i don't feel") to help keep her larynx a little more neutral.
These videos aren't showcase videos, they are little "warts and all" snippets of the students in the process of learning.
LOTS of laughs are interspersed among the exercises!
Great first attempt Chloe.
