A structured Lesson Plan on finding and using breath for singing created by singing Masterteacher Dr Gillyanne Kayes

Dr Gillyanne Kayes, author of Singing and the Actor, has created a step-by-step lesson plan that allows students time to explore what is meant by inbreath and outbreath, including the most efficient way to take breath into the body, and how to create airflow for healthy speaking and singing. The exercises are immensely practical and simple to teach, and they address the fundamental concept of breathing for singing and how we use breath control in singing musical phrases.

This 90 minute Lesson Plan includes the following topics:
  • Introducing the concept of breathing - different purposes
  • Student experiences of in and out breath
  • Quiet breathing versus active breathing for singing
  • Moving from breath to sound
  • The elastic recoil
  • The beginnings of abdominal support
  • Breath management - breathing and rhythm
  • Watchpoints
The Lesson Plan is aimed at group teaching, but would work equally well as two one-to-one singing lessons

Each Lesson Plan contains:

Aims - so you can see where the lesson can fit into your curriculum
Duration - how long the lesson will last (you can extend or shorten it to suit your group or individual)
Resources - what you need for the best lesson experience
Learning Objectives - the themes and targets for each singing class
Differentiated Learning Outcomes - what each singing student can expect to learn by the end of the class, divided into three categories: All students, Most students, Some students
Red Boxes! The Red boxes contain Useful Facts, Jargon Busters and Watchpoints to support you through each lesson plan and help you problem-solve

We'll send you your Lesson Plan PDF directly to your email inbox so you could be using it in your next class.
