So, you may have seen on the news that choirs have been creating virtual singing events.
You know me... I love a technical challenge and I love singing with the children so why don't we give it a try?
I have downloaded a song and the song words at the bottom of this blog. We had just introduced this song to the children before these strange events started. However, the song sounds very appropriate at the moment so I thought we would continue with it and it could be the one that we tried to do first. Who knows, if it works well we could do more?
So what do you need to do?
Listen to the song and learn it really well.
Put the song on your phone or music device and then put your earphones in and get used to singing along.
When you feel ready to record...... go and dust off your school jumper and put it on so that we become one choir again!
Then go for it! Record the whole song if you can as you are listening to it with earphones in.
Don't be too hard on yourself as remember you are just one voice and with the magic of technology we will be turning you into a whole choir. Everyone is going to sound a bit funny with no music seemingly playing and the odd wobble in your voice.
When you are happy 'enough' - send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I often use a free data transfer site wetransfer.com to send big video files.
I will then try to edit all of the videos together. It may take some time but its worth a try.
For this to work though I need lots of you to have a go!
Here is a video for a little bit of an idea of how we were going to do it at school for a performance. Hopefully we will do it all together soon but in the meantime I can have a go at getting the same effect on a video.
COME ON ..............GIVE IT A GO!
