Guided Wim Hof Method Breathing 25/03/2021

Guided Wim Hof Method Breathing

Hi everyone! I was talking with one of my students today about breathing techniques, and introduced them to the Wim Hof method. More recently, I have noticed that a lot of people I teach have had issues with relaxing into their breathing exercises, purely because of how we're all still living our lives on zoom or working from home with too many distractions.
The following video is a wonderful way of resetting how the lungs work, and giving our bodies and minds the much needed relaxation to function as they did pre-pandemic. I hope that it helps, and that you all have a wonderful day.

Tambourine Love (Original song by Penny Fazackerley)

So... IT'S FINISHED!!! Here is the official video for 'Tambourine Love', which I wrote about 9 years ago, and has been completely revamped by my wonderful function band FRiSK! Massive thanks to Alex Creese for mixing the sound, video editing, and superb guitar playing, Jonathan Wills for his brilliant drumming and tambourine, Peter Falconer for his piano and organ skills, and Daniel Gaylard for his awesome bass! I literally could not be happier!
I hope you all like it! 😁

What did Penny think of her volunteer trip to Sierra Leone?

It’s less than two weeks until I go to Nairobi with @Hear Their Roar, to help children who have gone through extreme trauma with the use of music, drama, and emotional health discussion groups. I’m at 70% of my fundraising target, so please please please share this post, and if you can donate anything, I would be forever grateful. Thank you ###. I have also attached the video interview that I did about the trip to Sierra Leone in February.

Penny Fazackerley on Givey

Hi everyone! In February, I am heading out to Sierra Leone for two weeks to work with Hear Their Roar, in collaboration with Street Child. Whilst we are there, we will be working with the street children doing music, drama, and discussion workshops, to help the children with their mental health, and to help to give them hope that their lives can change for the better. In order for me to get there, I have to raise £1500, which includes accommodation, flights, a driver to take us everywhere safely, security, food, water, and then a 48 hour retreat at the end of the trip to help us adjust back to what we would class as normality. Please take a read of my givey page, and if you can donate to help me get out there, I would be so so grateful. Thank you ###

Proud Mary at Massaoke Edinburgh

After spending nearly two weeks working in Al Murray's band at the Edinburgh Fringe, I spent the last night at Massaoke, where they invited me on stage when their singer didn't show up. It was so much fun. If you get a chance at any point, make sure you go along and check it out!

[03/15/15]   So so proud of my two students who went in for their grade 3 vocal exams - distinctions all round!! Could not be more pleased for them right now. :-D

[12/31/14]   Happy New Year to all of my past and present students! =)

[12/25/14]   Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful day. Xx

[11/18/14]   Tip for today: In order to help you work on the performance aspect of singing, practice performing in front of a mirror. Yes you will feel silly, but by doing this you will be able to see how your performance looks from the audience's perspective. Look at how your face moves when you sing, how you can use body movement to convey the emotion in a song, and pretend that you are actually performing. Unless you see yourself performing, you are never going to be able to tell if what you are doing is the best that you can do.

[10/28/14]   Tip for today: Having good posture when you sing is key to allowing your diaphragm to work properly. Your gluteal muscles, pelvic muscles, back muscles, and stomach muscles all connect together to form a support network, which helps your diaphragm muscle to do it's job. So when you're singing, relax, don't tense your muscles, and allow those muscles to do their jobs properly.

To prove this point, try singing whilst trying to touch your toes - It's not that easy is it (although I envy you if you can touch your toes...)!
#VocalTipTuesday

[10/21/14]   Tip for today: When you sing, make sure that you allow your jaw to drop. You should never sing with your mouth virtually closed, as when you want to project your voice, you could end up straining muscles, simply through not opening your mouth enough, and trying to force sound through a virtually closed mouth. If you allow your jaw to relax, and you open your mouth wide when singing, the muscles in your throat and your mouth will allow your vocal cords to do what you want them to do. #VocalTipTuesday

[10/14/14]   Tip for today: Avoid eating big meals before singing. You should always leave at least 30 minutes between eating and singing, as if you eat and then sing straight away, your diaphragm will hit against your stomach and your oesophagus, and could cause reflux. If you are going to sing after eating, give your stomach a chance to do its job, so that you can sing to the best of your ability, without getting a mouthful of bile every now and then! #VocalTipTuesday

[10/07/14]   Tip for today: If your throat is sore, get a bowl of boiling water (with nothing else in it), stick a towel over your head, and inhale the steam for 10-15 minutes, 2-3 times a day. Other than drinking water, that is the only other way to rehydrate your throat. But obviously, if you have your own sauna, that'll work too*. #VocalTipTuesday

*You lucky sods, if you have your own sauna. I'm not jealous. Not jealous at all...

[09/30/14]   Tip for today: When you have a cold, steer clear of dairy, and drink lemon and ginger tea, with a spoonful of honey in it. The lemon will cleanse your throat of any nastiness, the ginger the target the problem areas (sore throat, stuffy nose, etc), and the honey will soothe. No need for throat lozenges! #VocalTipTuesday

Throat lozengers - a singer's worst enemy.

It's getting to that time of year again, where colds are lurking around the corner...
Here is a blog that I wrote a while back on vocal health, and why throat lozenges are bad for you.
