Audio Book 10. Billy Joins The Circus
Although I take my role as a storyteller seriously,I do have an enormous amount of fun making my audiobooks! Creating the characters' voices is always an extremely fun process and I love it when I get to the stage of adding Sound Effects! Sometimes, this part of the creation process can take longer than one would imagine! I invent many of the FX in my stories from scratch and make sure I am always being original with my use of sounds. I use panning and other volume tricks to create as much movement and depth in the stories as possible. Sometimes I get so carried away with all the fun I'm having that I end up singing and dancing along to the story! It's lucky there isn't a hidden camera in the studio because I'm sure people would think I'm a little crazy haha!
This story has been very popular in my Story Time. I brought little coloured wristbands for the children to put on to help them feel as though they are in the circus during the drama section. I also printed out templates to help me teach the children about The Big Top. They really love this! The templates give them a chance to practice their colouring in as well as their drawing skills.
I have released this audiobook on Bandcamp. Here's the link: https://musicaudiostories.bandcamp.com/track/billy-joins-the-circus
You'll love it!
