Pitch Exploration Pathways
First Steps in Music Series
By John Feierabend
Set of flashcards, each 11" X 17"

Eleven large cards, each 11" x 17", printed in vibrant colors on cardstock. Each has a fun illustration with a movement line - such as a roller coaster car that has gone up and down several times. These drawings provide inspiration for children to make sliding sounds that explore the vocal muscles used to sing in the upper register or "head voice." The teacher or group leader is encouraged to begin with descending sliding sounds and add ascending sliding sounds after the correct muscles are engaged.

Just as an athlete warms up certain muscle groups before exercising, singers should "warm up" the head voice muscles with activities such as these before singing. Just as aerobics improve physical conditioning, vocal ability will improve if these pathways are used frequently.

A sheet of teaching techniques is included.   

For early childhood.

Pictures Included:

  • Deflating Balloon
  • Skier
  • Falling Leaf
  • Inchworm
  • Snail
  • Kangaroo
  • Roller Coaster Car

I saw Mr. Feierabend last year at a workshop. I loved his approach and the products he shared with us.
