Julie Andrews Learns To Yodel From Maria Von Trapp

In this lovely video, Julie Andrews learns to yodel from the real Maria Von Trapp!


The iconic movie, The Sound of Music, was released in 1965, and Julie Andrews played the role of Maria. Her character was a tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey who becomes a governess in the home of a widowed naval captain with seven children. There, Maria brings a new love of life and music into the home.

This heartwarming movie was based on the real-life story of the Von Trapp Family singers, one of the world's best-known concert groups in the era immediately preceding World War II. And this short video shows Julie Andrews sharing a sweet moment with Maria Von Trapp while she teaches the actress how to yodel!

These two sound so great together when they blend their beautiful voices in this song. And they look like they both are having such a great time up on stage together.

“What a marvelous Austrian folk song hummed by Julie and Maria. Both of their voices are great to me,” comments one person on YouTube after watching this video.

“She is so classy. Such perfect diction, pronunciation, clarity and beautiful to hear and see -- defining the genre for her day,” writes another person online. “Engaging the audience with her every move, expression and sound.”

“No one could have played Maria Von Trapp better than Julie Andrews! She made the film classic, iconic, and timeless worldwide!” another person writes on YouTube and we couldn’t agree more!
