SHEFFIELD SINGING COMPETITION FOR TEENAGERS – Pre-Teen category!

The Lyric – Nerves affected conviction. Much promise though…this may work better to a backing track.

Lucy Whitmore – Great dynamics and considered song choice. Well done. (Some straining in some upper note values)

Morgan Tether – Confidently projected. Nice attention to image. Watch pace…

Sarah Shaw – Composed and nice voice. Some slips today (nerves?) but you warmed into this.

Amy Helling – Well done Amy. Great expression and attention to style of piece.  (Watch breathing technique)

Katie –Great pace, control and phrasing. Lovely voice.

Niamh – Resonant, full of presence and great potential….

Elli Jade – Smooth movement, expressive and good tempo control.  Better second time around….

Roxy Waite – Good voice and looked comfortable. Be a little careful with song choice / interpretation.

Ebony - Elements of performance here. Not every pitch was exact, but highly promising.

Pallav – Powerful, liked the ornamentation. Very good.

Katie Wotawe – Nice voice, but tentative and would benefit from eye contact…

SHEFFIELD SINGING COMPETITION FURTHER FEEDBACK FOR TEENAGERS – Pre-Teen category!

Alluminus – Good blending, preparation and costumes….deserve to go through.
