The newest addition in the Learning on the Move series, this book is a resource for conductors and directors of a variety of vocal and instrumental ensembles—from upper elementary choirs, Orff ensembles, and beginning bands to middle school and high school choirs, orchestras, and bands. These active start-ups to ensemble rehearsals will result in more productive sessions as students explore, share, discuss, and discover the information necessary to be self-directed musicians.
Buzzing flea: vocal warm up by Artis. Children sing better when they are relaxed and enjoying themselves, so this is an effective and fun warm up that will help improve the quality of their singing. In this activity children have to concentrate to follow the different stages involved in eating a buzzing flea. It allows them to explore the range of their voices, which will then equip them better to hit the pitch and right notes in a song.
