Sing a song!

Sing a song

What a great article I’ve found today from The University of Oxford about singing. Here’s some quotes:

The physiological benefits of singing, and music more generally, have long been explored. Music making exercises the brain as well as the body, but singing is particularly beneficial for improving breathing, posture and muscle tension. Listening to and participating in music has been shown to be effective in pain relief, too, probably due to the release of neurochemicals such as β-endorphin (a natural painkiller responsible for the “high” experienced after intense exercise).
Singing has also been shown to improve our sense of happiness and wellbeing.

Gotye "Somedoby that i used to know" for recorder. Gotye para flauta dulce

Look what I found on the website YouTube, a nice music transcript for recorder of one of the most original songs in this year: "Somebody I used to know" by the famous artist, Gotye.

You can watch this video to learn the notes while you play you can listen to music and read. I recommend that you check the note B flat, because this song uses this altered note. See the position of the fingers below and practice it without the music before you start playing, just play the notes only with the position of the fingers and then try to play it all together blowing and playing with the music of this video.

NOTE: For beginners students I would recommend studying the chorus an octave lower, just play the notes one octave lower than it is write on the score.
