Apusski Dusky

  • "Apusski Dusky" is a catchy song with easy to sing intervals.
  • Great for preparing and practising "fa" and/or "ti" as these melodic elements are approached by step or skip. Therefore, this is a great song for familiarising students with the sounds of the major scale.
  • With easy rhythms, this is a fantastic song for preparing, making conscious and practising "too" and "too-oo-oo-oo" (minim and semibreve).
  • For older students, try singing with modal transformation and rhythmic diminution
