Recital Highlights

A strategic plan is necessary to make the journey from the first day you sight-read a piece of music until you perform it in concert. This class presents an opportunity to plan your entire school year’s worth of repertoire, performances and rehearsals. Each piece of repertoire is unique and requires an artistic and technical approach and methodology. Arm yourself with the tools necessary to set a philosophically based long-term vision, plan repertoire, create units of study, gather professional resources, discuss and share rehearsal strategies, learn ways to integrate technology into lessons, design concert formats, and plan for concert presentations.Participants will be required to design sets of repertoire for each ensemble, create lessons and rehearsal plans geared towards engagement, and create assessments that will measure student growth.  This class is just what you need to be prepared and organized for next school year, ready to engage your students in rehearsals, and in position to inspire and educate your audiences during concerts.

The summer online term officially begins on Monday, June 10. The week prior to June 10, you'll be added as a new Schoology user.
