The way we approach the beginning of a note can affect what happens afterwards: poor tonal quality, breath control, or dynamic variation

A structured Lesson Plan on how to coordinate breath and tone in singing, including four different tone onsets
created by Vocal Process Accredited Teacher Anne Leatherland

This Lesson Plan tackles that important moment - the beginning of a voiced sound. With inexperienced students the tone 'onset' can be hit and miss, and even experienced students can lack variation in their singing. This lesson will get the students in touch with their vocal folds in a safe and practical way. It will give them the control they need and also help them explore new sound qualities.

This 60-90 minute Lesson Plan includes the following topics:
  • Jargon Buster - different names for the same tone onsets
  • Ideas for Warm ups (preparing for fine motor control skills)
  • Ways to start a tone - group practical exploration
  • Applying the onsets in a sample song
  • Useful facts - three different behaviours of the vocal folds, four different breath patterns
  • Brainstorming
  • Task
  • Watchpoints
The Lesson Plan is aimed at group teaching, but would work equally well as a section in 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 - 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 - you could be using it in tomorrow's class!
