Partner Warm-Up #7
From Plank Road Publishingby Teresa Jennings
This bouncy warm-up in the style of a tarantella is a partner piece, so the parts are sung separately, then together as a duet. The lively 6/8 style is amplified by the fact that the lyrics are lighthearted. The humor helps get even older students interested in joining in. The exercise stresses the use of mouth muscles, enunciation of consonants, vowel sounds, and focus on pitches, even when the intervals move quickly.
Use the excellent recording included in the kit, or play on the piano at different tempos to give singers a real workout. (from Music K-8, Vol. 20, No. 5)
