it's been a busier month for me and not just for singing. Work, has kept me busy during the weeks especially with the end of the financial year coming up and other members of staff being on holiday.
With the singing, I think I can honestly say that I've had a good month! I joined the late session of Deal Rock Choir on a Wednesday in which forces me to practise more. I've only atteneded 2 sessions at the moment but I'm having lots of fun and I'm learning how harmonies work in a song.
As for the singing lessons I had a 3 week break over Easter and the half term break, after we cam back I started on a new song. Another one of the Vaughen Williams, this time from the 'Five Mystical Songs' series; this one is called 'The Call' it's a slower song and it's also shorter than 'The Vagabond' They are both difficult songs to learn and I'm having fun in doing so.
I've made a habit of uploading my singing lessons via, Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/chrisp_sings/sets/singing-lessons
or on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9a5nuQi8zw
I have also uploaded my first song on Youtube. 'This Little Light of Mine' I had to do it acapella because I couldn't find the backing track for it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I3pqP0ve6c - I think it went pretty well as I wasn't 100% how it was going to turn out but I'm glad I stuck with it.
Onto YouTube I have now got 4 subscribers, it may not be a lot to brag about but I'm already happy that 4 people want to subscribe to my channel and see what I do. I hope to do another song in May, I've been playing around with a few songs but I haven't fully decided as of yet.
I will keep you all updated on social media on my Twitter and Facebook pages and I'll speak to you soon
