Get Them Singing! Choosing Music For Your Developing Choir
How can I get my students to sing out? Why is it so hard for them to learn their parts? We all want our students to sing their best in choir class and performance. This 2-day course will guide you in carefully choosing music for successful singing. Additionally, there will be numerous ideas for fun songs and warm-ups that will entice your choir to sing out. Complimentary music from leading publishers will be provided for study. Class students will present “pieces that worked” by leading our class in short lessons using music from your classroom. Bring enough copies of 2 different octavos for each class member to sight read. Singing techniques and choir formations will be highlighted to help your singers maximize their sound.
