The Secret Garden



It was brilliant to see you back in your sessions this week. We’ve missed your faces over the Easter holidays. 


This term we are going to be focussing on The Secret Garden and our articulators. 


We looked at four articulators this week: the jaw, tongue, lips and teeth.  


We then listened to It’s a Maze – find the track here (Jade/Mercy - use link https://open.spotify.com/track/0rSV2j47K7V3JVZEqGUa6S?si=c952bc814e604f17


We looked to identify the different ways the articulators were used by each character to create the different qualities used by the actors. 


The next few weeks will see us exploring each of the articulators more. 


Stay amazing 


Week 2



Tis week we focussed on the jaw. We played around with how sounds can change whether we’re keeping our jaw restricted and closed, or over using it be opening it up more than ‘normal’ to say/sing words. 


We looked at a couple of stretching exercises – and enjoyed the massaging the cheeks as we went about relaxing and loosening the muscles.  


We had great fun trying it out in different ways with the song too. 


Stay amazing 


Week 3




We carried on with our jaw focus this week. We revisited what we discussed last time, and what happens if we restrict or exaggerate the movement of it. 


We then looked at what the jaw does in its day-to-day role. We discovered that chewing would cause the cheek muscles to tighten because they must bring the jaw up and break things down in our mouths. 


We explored the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) which connects the jaw to the skull, and where we ideally would like to jaw to go to in the socket when singing. 


This week think about which side of the mouth you chew on and come back ready with your answers for next session. 


Stay amazing 


Week 4



Loved exploring what side of the mouth you chewed on this week. 


We also began to look at our lips and explore how they can be used to brighten (open) or darken (close) sounds. 


Stay amazing 


Week 5



We continued exploring our lips, and the connection to the cheeks and jaw this week.  


I loved playing with alien sounds. What other sounds can you create this week? 


Stay amazing 


Week 6



Brilliant session this week. We finished our exploration of all but one of the articulators.


This week we discussed the teeth, gums, and palate.


We discovered that we have a hard palate and a soft palate.


We also discovered the soft palate can be raised or lowered, and what nasalised sounds are.


Stay amazing


Week 7



We started our exploration of the tongue this week. It’s a huge muscle with lots to explore, and this will be the focus for the next few weeks.


Today we looked at how the tongue can work with the soft palate, and use the exercise ‘ng-gar’ to help work the back of the tongue (the dorsum) and the soft palate at the same time.


Stay amazing


Week 8



This week we explored the tip of the tongue. 


We explored how it can help make different sounds and create precise articulation of consonants. 


Stay amazing
