Music With Emmeline – Monday 25th May

Here are today’s musical activities from Emmeline.

Vocal Warm-Up: Blowing Up a Balloon 

This week’s vocal warm-up is not as much to do with the use of our voice but about controlling our breath. This can also be a very useful calming and focusing exercise also.
