OXYTOCIN CLINIC SONGBOOK

SONGS FOR NOISY MAJORS

Purpose of This Site

More often than not people find the action of singing gives a positive experience.

The release of the hormone Oxytocin is given much credit for this feeling.

This collection is compiled with the hope that people will find their voices and some fun and some connection through these songs.

 

PLEASE NOTE Oxytocin not to be confused with Oxycontin.

Oxytocin is a powerful hormone that acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. It regulates social interaction and plays a role in behaviors in regard to empathy, generosity, and orgasm. When we hug or kiss a loved one, oxytocin levels increase; hence, oxytocin is often called "the love hormone."

Oxytocin is the hormone that underlies trust. It is also an antidote to depressive feelings. Said to be released in human and also song birds when making music.

 

OxyContin: Is a prescription painkiller, a popular and dangerous recreational drug alled "Oxy" in the street.

OxyContin a time-release morphine-like narcotic intended to relieve pain of moderate to severe proportions.

This collection of Lyrics, given with a site for the tune on Utube creates the possibility that people can use the song collection to learn and teach songs around their kitchen table and

become KITCHEN TABLE SINGERS.

 

FOR PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCE DIFFICULTY IN MAINTAINING PITCH

Some people who have been told they are tone-deaf are not often ‘tone-deaf’ at all, they just have not learned to listen to themselves.This can be because they listen to songs

through earphones,sing with the recorded voice and what they hear is that recorded voice rather than their own.

Control of pitch is primarily a muscular control. Its mastery is a question of training, as in athletic training.

The Auditory Cortex is a part of the brain and just as the body muscles require constant use so to do the muscles of the Auditory Cortex.

Singing in tune involves three steps: to hear, to remember, to reproduce.

 

STEPS TO LEARNING TUNES FROM A RECORDED VOICE

1. Just listen to the track at least 3 times. Let the tune resonate in your head.

Try to ‘hear’ the tune with your ‘inner ear’ without the song playing.

2.Listen and just ‘lip’ the words without creating any sound. Say the words silently.

3.Listen to the song in short pieces, phrases or lines of song.

Stop the sound and echo the lines with HUMMING of the tune.

Open the throat and sing the tune to Ahhhh .

Add the words.

If the song has a chorus listen to the song but only sing the chorus.

Build up to sing with the verses when you feel confident that you can pitch the tune.

Using an electronic tuner that responds to voice will show you if you are on pitch.

If you have the facility on computer or phone to record your voice check if you are on pitch

from that.

Before singing sessions drink water and clear nasal passages
