Thread Name: EFDSS Role in the 21st Century
Subject: RE: EFDSS Role in the 21st Century
My introduction to folk song and dance was in Junior School singing lessons. The songs were simple, easy to learn the tunes, and everyone could have a go!
Very few children currently learn how to sing and when they do sing it is more akin to a bellow.
However, as commented above, the teachers really ought to know how to sing properly themselves before attmpting to teach others. This where E F D S S could be useful. Happily we have today moved away from the time when that society proclaimed that folk songs should be sung in an operatic manner!
