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

Eleven large cards, each 11" wide x 17" high, printed in vibrant colors on cardstock. Each card has an illustration on the front, with a corresponding story on the back; the back side also has directions for the response sounds. These amusing stories help inspire children to make sliding sounds that explore the vocal muscles used to sing in the upper register or "head voice." 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 stories are used frequently.

For early childhood.

Story Cards:

  • An Old Woman
  • Andrew Got a Pogo Stick
  • The Blue Cockatoo
  • Cowboy Joe
  • On a Dark and Stormy Night

I chose this after participating in a fantastic convention session hosted by John Feierabend. I was looking for ways to add variety into vocal warm-ups.
