#ecbwarmup Get Bendy.
I've been using @take6official as warmup material for many years. Singing a Take6 part is like doing Pilates with your voice. 😂 Honing all those little muscles you never knew you had. This is a great way to get my mid and upper register feeling flexible and bendy! Focusing on: pitch accuracy over large interval jumps, matching vowel sounds, subtle dynamics.
I've chosen the top voice of the background part here and am focusing on singing it as accurately as possible. The idea is not to make this my own, but to mimic every attack, ornamentation and dismount as closely as possible. Some of the most valuable lessons here are: making large interval jumps with accuracy - there's one that is almost two octaves, singing crescendos with no vibrato while controlling pitch, and matching the few moments of vibrato/horn 'shakes'
Song: David & Goliath from the debut Take 6 album.
In this set up I got the boys working on some quick hands, along with some different moves and fakes. Once I see that their comfortable with the drill, Ill provide a little pressure, this will add layer of difficulty and make the drill more game specific. Not very often will you be able to wheel and deal in game without someone trying to take your puck. Like I said in a post last week. Be active as a coach. Challenge your players, the more engaged you are, the more engaged they'll be. ---------------------------------------------------

Good morning and happy Friday! 🙌🏻✨💃 Lately, I've been thinking about the innate fallibility of being human, as well as our tendency to criticize others for their mistakes. It seems to me that this dynamic exists within every grouping of people around the world (at least to the extent of my knowledge and limited ethnocultural understanding.) Do we judge and criticize others to better understand our own ideals and value systems? Does it help us to form a personal identity? If so, why do humans have this tendency to attempt to separate themselves from the 'other'? Why do we crave an enemy? Are we seeking shadows in others so that we may redirect the light onto ourselves? I've been working on this within myself in recent months, as an intentional, mental practice ~ dhyana ~ and I am become both more aware of it and better able to redirect my train of thought towards more compassion or understanding. 💖 We are all teachers and students here and I'm so grateful for the many lessons I'm learning. 🙏🏻 .
Rhubarb in stock syrup, with lemon peel and thyme... I slung this one together 6 months ago, back when the sun made more frequent and prolonged appearances! Strong thyme flavour, very sweet. Next time less sugar... #experiment#practice#developement#matbygget
