Beijing Wanbao - Line 1
In this lesson, you will follow a different learning progression than in the previous lessons. Before, you focused exclusively on the phonemes and rhythm, but now you will do:
- AND Tones
Finally, we add in the tones. In the track below, the syllables are held constant (everything is "ma"), but I mimic the artists tonal progression exactly.
- Listen closely and sing along with me, matching my rhythm and tones EXACTLY.
- I recommend listening with earphones, so you can feel your vibration of your voice box matching what you are hearing exactly.
- Do NOT think about what the tones are, as this will just distract you. Instead, focus exclusively on matching the pitches.
- Once you are comfortable singing along with me, sing it out loud to yourself a few times without the audio aid.
Once you have memorized line 1, you may continue to Line 2.
